I worked as a substitute teacher for the Hartland Lakeside School District for over fifteen years. I was hired by the district in 2007 as a Special Education Aid for two years. I spent one year as a Learning Assistant at NSMS and one year at Hartland North as a Learning Assistant. This is my fifth year at Hartland South, working as a Learning Assistant. Last year as well as this year I am working as a Special Education Assistant. I am fortunate because I get to work with Regular Education and Special Education staff. I enjoy supporting students in small groups and also working with individual students. Each year I am amazed by how much growth and knowledge our students gain from September to June.
