I am excited and honored to be providing services to your child. My goal is to help them reach their potential by focusing on each student's individual needs and strengths.
Each student on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is mainstreamed into the regular education classes.
Please refer to your child's home room teacher for information regarding supply lists and assignments.
I teach in a Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD) Resource Room at Bonner Elementary. I am a graduate of Mankato State University with degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education. I began teaching at Bonner Elementary School in 2001. I have been a resident of Stewartville since 1989. I have been married to my husband, Ken for 37 years. My husband teaches high school Biology at Winona Public Schools. My husband and I have 3 grown children. Our children are all graduates of Stewartville Public Schools. Our children are married and we have 3 grandchildren and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our 4th grandchild. I enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
My school phone number is 507-533-1535. I am available before school (7:30-8:00) and after school (3:00-3:30). I can be contacted via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Each student on my caseload has an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Please refer to your child’s classroom teacher’s website for their specific schedule.
Bonner Elementary School participates in ROAR--a positive behavior plan. Children receive ROAR tickets when they make good choices. Each student has an IEP and based upon the information in their IEP, each student will be addressed in an individualized manner. When a problem occurs in our resource room, students receive verbal reminders to make better choices. If a problem continues, the, student will take a break from the situation. Parents/guardians are notified if a student continues to be challenged with a specific problem.
