Kerrilee earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree from Siena Heights College in 1991. After working in the service industry and retail management, she realized she had a passion for teaching while volunteering as an art teacher in Phoenix. She worked in daycare and special needs schools, while earning her teaching certification in the field of cross-categorical special education. She worked in private schools for several years serving students with significant emotional and behavioral needs, as well as autism. Next, she spent six years in a public school district as a special educator and department chair, during which she earned a Masters of Education degree from Grand Canyon University. Currently, Kerrilee is the English Language Development and Exceptional Student Services Coordinator at a public charter school in Phoenix. Her thirteen years’ experience has afforded her the opportunity to identify and work with students in all grade levels with learning differences, attention difficulties, and all types of educational disabilities, as well as those whose skills are typical and above average. She works with students of all ages, and specializes in identifying the strengths and needs of kindergarten through sixth grade students across all subject areas.
”I’ve come to look forward to our sessions with Kerri because I know she has the skill level, both academically and on the personal level, to give my son the help he needs.”
