Special Services


Our learning specialists are led by Nicole Maute, Stephanie Sullentrup, Leah Treadwell, Katie Rouse, and Kelsey Schuermann (Randle).   They are supported by our amazing paraprofessionals Megan Cunningham, Sue Wilson, and Betty Bartlett. This team works collaboratively to support students in all academic areas: math, reading, writing, and behavior.

My name is Nicole Maute.  I was born in Jefferson City, but have lived most of my life in Oklahoma or Southern Missouri.  My family moved here several years ago and we love Ashland!  I received my Elementary Education degree in 2013 from Drury University.  I have since added Early Childhood and Special Education certifications.  When we moved up here, I knew that I wanted to be a part of Southern Boone Schools.  This district is amazing and I feel privileged to be a part of it!  Go Eagles!!!
