Becky Dotson Welcome

Rebecca Dotson
Special Education Teacher

This is my 6th year at Estes Elementary as a resource teacher, and my eleventh year in Buncombe County Schools.  I look forward to another great year, working with the awesome team of students and teachers in our school.  Together we will be exploring and practicing skills and habits to help us all become leaders in our schools, our families and our community!

I grew up in Cocoa Florida near the Kennedy Space Center, where my father worked as an engineer for NASA. I have a bachelor's degree in Music history from State University of New York at New Paltz and a Master of Teaching in Special Education from Western Carolina University.  My husband & I have lived at West Point, NY at the United States Military Academy, Columbia SC, and Rockledge, Florida, before moving to the Asheville area in 2005.  Western North Carolina feels the most like home of any place we’ve been!   We absolutely love it here!  We have raised 3 sons who are now grown, and we currently live with Ginger, our 14 year old shepherd/retriever mix in Hendersonville.


This school year I will be teaching a smaller class with students needing a majority of their instructional sessions to be in a smaller group setting.  There will be two teacher assistants who will be working closely with students in the class.  We are looking forward to working with all these students to help  maximize his/her abilities, to work on developing challenging goals for themselves, and to self-monitor progress toward those goals.  

Feel free to visit our classroom, leave me an e-mail, or call with questions or concerns.
