Our History

Tracy has a Doctorate in Educational Leadership with an emphasis on Special Education. She taught for many years in the classroom before building and opening Education Connection. Born and raised in Killeen, Dr. Tracy understands the needs of the children in the community and is committed to providing quality care in a developmentally appropriate environment.
