Dominique Tetslaff

Assistant Professor of Special Education

Dominique has been in the field of education for almost ten years. She started her career as a special education teacher in a middle school serving at-risk students in a high poverty community. She recently completed her doctorate in special education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and she specializes in high incidence disabilities, using technology for students with disabilities, and methods for teaching English Language Learners. Her dissertation study Using Mobile Technology to Increase the Math Achievement and Engagement of Students with Disabilities focused on the critical design features and implementation of mobile devices to support teacher-directed instruction. She hopes to further expand this research line to develop guidelines for using digital lessons in the core content areas for students with disabilities. Dominique is excited to be part of the UMF faculty and looks forward to enjoying the community with her family.
