After Pam and Kendall Quarterman identified a gap in support for high-functioning individuals after they graduate high school, they co-founded Segue Center to provide flexible support to these young adults no matter what their next step may be.
Kendall Quarterman, J.D. is the Director of Segue Center. Kendall has a background in law and education, having taught students of all ages who struggle with learning differences. Growing up helping special needs children instilled empathy and a passion for working in the community here in Dallas. After becoming a licensed attorney, Kendall expanded her professional skills to find ways that she could continue to serve the learning different population. In addition to classroom experience, she has also served as an Education Advocate for students in the public school special education system. Kendall has previously taught multiple subject areas to different age groups, and also runs our social skills RPG groups for ages 14+.
Pam Quarterman, M.M.Sc., CCC-SLP, a speech-language pathologist, educator, and administrator, has been leading a highly successful, innovative private school for bright, learning-different students, ages 3 – 18, for over thirty years in Dallas, and started this new, innovative center together with Kendall. Pam now serves as the Director Emeritus of Segue Center, advising and assisting with curriculum development and services from her new home in Virginia.
Jon Acton is our newest staff member and is a Part-Time Program Assistant. Jon has been in education for over 31 years and is an incredible addition to the team at Segue Center. His approachable nature has allowed him to instantly develop rapport with members, and his knowledge of the Dallas community helps bring new context and perspective to the team. We may only have him on certain days, but his impact is felt far and wide!
