Dr. Carrie Simpson

Educational Consultant
Dr. Carrie Simpson has made a career of understanding, researching, and utilizing differentiated instruction as part of the foundation for teaching. Her work in the field of gifted education, followed by curriculum development and teacher training in the field of special needs brought her to one steadfast understanding: differentiation is paramount to student success.
She has served in administration as District Lead for Differentiation, working diligently with teachers 7-12 to promote effective, strategic instructional practices and to conduct research regarding differentiation.
Currently, Dr. Simpson continues to hone her skills in the craft of differentiation by teaching Humanities courses for Austin Community College, working with the ACC ECHS programs, and through online instruction for the University of Texas at Dallas’ Teacher Development Center, teaching a course on Differentiation for Diverse Student Populations.
Her experience in administration, as a teacher, a researcher and, in recent years, as an expert in professional development has prepared her to support teachers of all students and all ages. Dr. Simpson believes in the value of potent bursts of differentiated experiences that are productive, poignant and manageable for any classroom teacher.
Carrie earned a BA in English, an MA in Humanities and a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction. Her areas of expertise include differentiation, gifted education, special education, curriculum design, twice exceptional learners, brain-based instruction, curriculum flipping and administrator trainings for instructional support. Her presentations are housed in research and application to classrooms and her workshops are highly interactive, asking participants to engage in differentiated activities that model the instruction they are receiving.
