I have been a Special Education Assistant (SEA) at Dowling since 2000. I have three daughters who all attended Dowling, the oldest beginning in 1988 and the youngest finishing in 2001.
I completed the district 80 hour training for SEAs in autumn 2000.
I have two undergraduate degrees, in Psychology from Ohio University (1976) and in Nursing from University of Minnesota (1982). I maintain my Registered Nurse (RN) license with the state of Minnesota.
I currently work throughout the building, assisting in each DCD (Developmentally Cognitively Disabled) classroom as needed. I like the variety and the opportunity to become acquainted with all the students in the DCD program here at Dowling.
In my 10+ years at Dowling I have always enjoyed the challenge of helping students with disabilities learn the most they are able during their time at Dowling. I encourage children to work hard, but try to make sure we all have some fun at the same time.
I can be contacted at the school phone, 612-668-4410, and by email at email@example.com.
