  • Hello! My name is Xueqin Qian.  

    I am a Special Education Teacher at Lawrence Free State High School. I provide strength-based individualized support and instruction to students with Autism.  This is my first year at Free State; prior to this year I worked as a researcher at the University of Minnesota and the University of Kansas, studying how to prepare students with Autism and intellectual disability to transition from high school to adult life . I taught in China for three years at Wuhan Yangtze International School and later worked as a behavioral therapist for young children with Autism in Tsingtao, China. I completed my student teaching at White Bear Lake High School in Minnesota teaching students with Autism. My family moved to Lawrence in 2019. We have two children (Eddie and Emma) and a hamster (Foofoo). My husband is a hard core Vikings fan and I switched to becoming a Chief's fan after the Chiefs won the superbowl in 2019:-)
