Lindsay Sigrist MS. Ed.
Executive Director (she/her/hers)
Education Specialist: #110132298
My name is Lindsay, and having ADHD myself, I am passionate about education and executive functioning skills. I earned two teaching credentials (multiple subject and Special Education) and a Masters Degree in Special Education. My BA is in Psychology, and I’m a proud UC Berkeley alum!
Before joining the EFS team, I was the manager and instructor of the College to Career Program, a comprehensive higher education program for students with Intellectual Disabilities and/or Autism at Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa.. Before working at SRJC, I was a substitute teacher for Charter Schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, a math and transition teacher at a residential and high school program in Northern California, a grant writer and consultant, and a project manager for a community center in Northern California.
My pedagogy is rooted in supporting students in finding joy in learning and becoming lifelong learners, without shame or judgment. My approach to education is to meet students where they are, and to work collaboratively with family and other key stakeholders to support students in reaching their goals.
I specialize in working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, and in teaching emotional regulation strategies. One of my strengths is showing students that they are unconditionally supported, and that their perspective is unique and valuable.
My passion for education lies in supporting students to find confidence in themselves through learning, and supporting students in growing through education. In my free time I enjoy cross stitching, houseplants, hiking, hanging out with my two dogs, and spending time with my family.
