Headshot of Elise Yerkey


As an Implementation Specialist for the California Coalition for Inclusive Literacy, Elise partners with educators in Los Angeles County and throughout the state to infuse UDL practices into classroom instruction. Her perspectives on language, inclusion, and equity are grounded in her identity as a child of immigrant English learners and early experiences with classmates and loved ones with disabilities. Elise brings a wealth of leadership experience as site administrator, induction mentor, alternative education instructional specialist, accessibility consultant, and K-12 instructional coach. Her roots will always be in special education and her heart with her former middle school students.
