I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Central Michigan University with teaching certificates in both general and special education.  I earned my Masters Degree from Western Michigan University.  This is my twenty-third year teaching in Livonia Public Schools.  I taught special education for six years, second grade for one year, and fifth grade for the last fifteen years.
