On behalf of all the staff members, I would like to welcome everyone to the Woodall GNETS Program located in the beautiful city of Columbus, Georgia. It is a privilege to serve as director of Woodall. Our program has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful program that maintains the balance of academics and therapeutic supports for our students. The Woodall GNETS staff is trained to be developmentally responsive to the students we serve. All staff are committed to excellence in every aspect of providing high quality, challenging, and engaging learning experiences in a safe and caring environment. Our staff is always working together to learn how to make sure that we are providing quality services to our students and parents.  I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child’s education. I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, but please remember we are a TEAM in this educational process. Please fill free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Again, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!

Best Regards,

LaChrista S. McQueen
