Hello everyone! I'm Joanie Schillo and this is my 3rd year teaching at Meridian Elementary. I have multiple years of experience working with children, adolescence and adults with disabilities. My experiences include being a substitute teacher in Adams 12, Behavior Therapist, and instructor at a Day Program facility. I have my B.A. in Special Education from Metro State University and my M.A in Special Education with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis from the University of Colorado Denver.
I was born in Michigan, but raised in beautiful Colorado! I live in Thornton, CO with my husband James, son Camden and our dog Luna. I love to workout, spend time with friends and family, going to the mountains and traveling back to Michigan every summer to see family and spend time on Lake Michigan. I'm looking forward to this school year and getting to know all of my families and students!
