I am an occupational therapist working with special needs children in schools. I have been working for Sparta Area Schools for about 20 years and worked in other districts prior to that. I received my undergraduate degree and my graduate degree from Western Michigan University. I have three sons and four dogs that take lots of my time and attentions. During my "free" time, I like to read, make jewelry, knit and do a little sewing (and I obviously read way too many blogs).
