Lynn Roper, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Special Education


Prior to coming to Cedarville University, Dr. Roper taught students with mild to moderate disabilities in a public inner-city middle school in Kentucky, where she worked both as a co-teacher in the regular education classroom in addition to teaching in a resource room. She had the opportunity to collaborate with all subject areas, providing differentiated instructional support and consulting on intervention needs. She then taught special education courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels for five years at Asbury University. She was also the director of the support program for students with disabilities. Dr. Roper is passionate about mentoring future teachers who desire to be the best they can be for their students.
