Welcome to MLI (Multisensory Language Instruction)!



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Christine Chiappinelli

I am thrilled to be part of the MLI team as a Dyslexia Specialist at both Coppell Middle School East and Pinkerton Elementary School!

This is my 2nd year in Coppell Independent School District and my 13th year in education.

I am a graduate of New York University with Bachelor of Science degrees in Special Education and in Early Childhood & Elementary Education as well as a Master of Arts in Educational Administration.  I am also certified in English as a Second Language.  I have been selected by Coppell ISD to pursue Texas Scottish Rite's Advanced Take Flight training through a partnership with Frisco ISD.

My husband and I are both originally from New York.  We have two children who are in 5th and 6th grade, two energetic dogs, and two rescue cats who are named after Star Wars characters. :)

My office hours are from 8:15-9:00 AM.
