Laura TyeCase Manager


Laura Tye has been with The Hope Institute Learning Academy since December 2009.  As the Special Education Coordinator, she facilitates writing and implementing high quality learning plans for our students that support our inclusion model.  Through observation and analysis of data, she ensures that plans are implemented with fidelity.  She supports the teachers, paraprofessionals and related services staff in providing the highest quality services to all students by providing professional development, coaching and mentoring.

Mrs. Tye has been a special educator in Chicago for 15 years.  After a successful career in the computer field, she completed her Master of Arts degree in Special Education at Northeastern Illinois University and became a special education teacher in the Chicago Public Schools in 1996.  Her experience at a CPS elementary school and a therapeutic day school provides her with a wide range of expertise which she brought to HILA in 2009 as Case Manager.  She has been recognized throughout her career for her ability to engage families to support student success.  Because of her performance in ensuring compliance, collaborating with departments at CPS and the ability to demonstrate success using data, she has been asked by CPS to mentor some of their case managers.

Mrs. Tye is committed to the inclusion model at HILA and the benefits it provides to all students.  Through participation on the multi-tiered support system team, she uses her unique experience to ensure that every HILA student is provided the tools to reach their highest potential.  She  enjoys the opportunities and challenges presented at HILA and working with the families, students and dedicated members of the HILA leadership team and staff.
