EAGLE, Colorado – Eagle County Schools has named Lori Seelig the new assistant director of exceptional student services. The position oversees the gifted and talented, and special education programs in the district.

During the past six years, Seelig has held curriculum director and federal program director positions at the Pottsboro Independent School District in Pottsboro, Texas. She coordinated professional development for the district and delivered presentations on gifted strategies, differentiation, curriculum and professional learning communities. She has also served as a classroom teacher, intermediate principal and special programs director for federal programs, public information management systems and gifted and talented services.
