Sarah Belleau, MA

Supporting and advocating for children and adults who learn differently, need additional support, or have an identified disability has been a passion of mine from an early age. Growing up in a community that was the location of a state program for individuals with disabilities drove my desire to create positive change. It was from my early experiences that a deep desire to create a world that recognized all individuals as an important part of communities whether at school, in the neighborhood or city, was developed. Through each educational pursuit, a desire to create change across systems was deepened. This drive and passion have led to a career in education and business that spans over 25 years, focusing on the development of systems, strengthening climate and culture, instruction and education, and advocacy.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy (CSU), a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Special Education (UNC), additional graduate studies and endorsements in Severe Needs: Cognitive (UNC); Special Education Leadership: Director of Special Education (UNC); Educational Leadership: Principalship (CSU); and certification as a Mediator. Through the years, I have been an occupational therapist, elementary special education teacher, early childhood general and special education teacher, instructional and behavioral coach, coordinator of special education programs, assistant director of special education, the director of special education and a mediator. Along with my educational career, I have been a long-time business owner, focusing on the retail industry as well as the service industry.  Currently, I am a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association, the Council for Exceptional Children, Phi Delta Kappa, the Association for Curriculum and Development, and the Mediation Association of Colorado. Participation on state committees has been an important commitment and I have served on several committees focused on finance, education and accountability.

In 2012, I was humbled when awarded the Employee of Year Award by the City of Fort Collins Commission on Disabilities. Giving back through presentations regarding numerous topics both locally, statewide, and nationally has been an important mission as well.

My focus with Rocky Mountain Neurobehavioral Health is working with families, school districts, businesses, and other organizations/agencies who are seeking information, advice, services and/or support regarding the development of systems, education, the creation of supportive work environments or other topics. Consultation, program evaluation, professional development, and mediation are several service areas provided. My goal is to use a collaborative approach when working to move organizations forward toward excellence.
