Dr Stacey Tucci began her career in Deaf Education as a kindergarten teacher
where she taught students using many modalities, including Spoken English,
American Sign Language (ASL), and sign-supported English (Conceptually Accurate Signed English (CASE)). After several
years in the classroom, Dr Tucci transitioned into research and curriculum
development focusing on early literacy instruction and abstract thought
development for children who are deaf. Dr Tucci has several publications in
respected research journals and has presented her work at both national and
international schools and conferences including sites across the United States
as well as Ethiopia, Australia, and Greece. Dr Tucci is currently the director
of Georgia Pathway to Language and Literacy, a state-wide coalition working
with private and public agencies to ensure all children in Georgia who are deaf
and hard of hearing are on a path to reading proficiency by 3rd grade.
