Bree Jimenez is an Associate Professor of Special Education at the University of Texas at Arlington. For more than 20 years prior to joining higher education she was a classroom teacher of students with moderate-to-severe intellectual disability in primary school and secondary school settings.
Bree’s research focuses on general curriculum access and assessment for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders. Much of her research is centred on supporting teachers using systematic instruction to teach grade-aligned STEM content (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
She has published several research manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, multiple book chapters, academic programs, and several books on strategies to support academics for students with severe disabilities. She works closely with school systems and state departments of education both nationally and internationally.
