It is so great to be back at McElwain this year! This will be my second year at McElwain as a Special Education Learning Specialist and my seventh year as a teacher. Previously I have taught Early Childhood Special Education for both inclusion and center based programs. I am originally from Grand Rapids Michigan where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education Emotional Impairments with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I am currently earning my master’s degree in Intellectual disabilities and will be finished this December! Outside of work I love to travel, explore in nature, and of course, read.
