I am a transition teacher for 18-21 year old students in Monticello, IA. I have a Masters Degree in Special Education from Mount Mercy University.
About My Family:
I am a single parent of 4 children. Three of my children are adults, one in the service, two in college and my fourth still in high school.
I'm here because...
My oldest child was born with cerebral palsy and he is the reason I went back to school to become a special education teacher. He is currently 23 years old, living with a roommate and trying to finish up his greenhouse management certification at the local community college. He struggles to find a job and receives social security benefits to help out with his daily expenses.
