ASD Offsite Classroom Teacher at Portage Central Elementary

WoodsEdge Learning Center

How long have you worked at Kalamazoo RESA?
I started working as a part time classroom teacher at Croyden in 2006. In 2008, I began working at the Young Adult Program. In 2010, I moved to teach at WoodsEdge in an ASD classroom for students ages 18-26. When I became pregnant with my first child, I transitioned to an offsite classroom in 2011. I have taught in the offsite classroom for the last 6 years.

Describe your job, in three sentences or less:
My job is like reading a mystery book. You never know what twist and turns will occur on a daily basis. Wake up daily and be positive, patient, and persistent.

What is your favorite book, movie or TV show?
Charlotte’s Web- I love to read chapter books with my children.

How do you relax at the end of the day?
To help me relax I like to play with my children. I don’t take much time to myself, but I love to be with my family!

What's something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have actually touched a snake. I am extremely scared of snakes (can’t even look at pictures of them). My paraprofessional took a picture of my touching the snake to demonstrate the shades that I turned while touching the snake. I was so shaky at the end I had to sit down.

What inspires you most about working at Kalamazoo RESA?
Being given the opportunity to witness the growth that the students make and to be able to help facilitate learning at various levels.
