Welcome Back Video- Szczupaj



I moved here from Chicago (Go Bears!) about 17 years ago with my husband, 2 sons, and my dog Zoey.  I have a degree in elementary education ( Aurora University) and a master's in special education (GCU).  When I lived in Chicago, I taught special education in inclusion.  That was when I knew my true calling in special education. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, hiking, and exploring Arizona! This is my sixth year teaching special education here in Arizona.  I love being a part of the DC Family. I like the fact that we all work together as a team to educate and enrich the whole student so they can go out into the world with the tools to succeed. I am lucky to serve your children and participate in their lives. I love my job! Thank you for sharing your child with me. I look forward to being your student's special education teacher.  If you need to contact me, my email is or my phone number is (623)-445-8000.
