Special Education Teacher

About Me:

Hello, my name is Becky Ruechel and I am a special educator at Pulaski Community Middle School.  I began working with special needs children as a line therapist with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project.  Through working with young children with Autism, I found a new passion.  This passion led me on a quest to return to school and obtain my teaching license in special education.  I began my teaching career in Gillett 10 years ago and this is my 7th year teaching within the Pulaski Community School District.  I was born and raised in Pulaski, graduating from Pulaski High School myself.  My husband (also a Pulaski grad) and I have made a home in the Pulaski Area and have 3 children who have also graduated from Pulaski High School.  I also drove school bus for 11 years for the district.   I truly love the people of the Pulaski School District and enjoying being able to be part of their education system. 

I have recently completed my Masters of Administrative Leadership and in addition to teaching, I am also the Pulaski High School Work experience Coordintor for Special Educaiton Students. My main focus in the classroom is teaching and challenging my students in becoming self advocates and independent citizens.  Another main focus of mine helping students with disabilities and their families think about their life after high school. Through transition planning, we focus on identifying long-range goals designing the high school experience to ensure that students gain the skills and connections they need to achieve these goals.
