Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Michelle Ladd
I have been in the Birmingham School District for the past 23 years teaching at the middle school, then in a self-contained cross categorical room, and currently in the elementary school. I began my career teaching in Texas working with students from second to eighth grades. Here is where I found the love for students who learn differently. I believe that ALL students can learn, but they learn at different rates and in different ways.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Michigan State University and a Masters of Education in Special Education from the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas! I am on many district committees and have been hard at work piloting our newest Science unit of study. Learning the most current trends in education to share with my students, is a passion I have so I attend many classes and workshops. I am a life-long learner!
I am married and have a son Jonathan, who is currently a senior at Central Michigan University and is a percussionist on the drumline there! In my spare time, I take care of my aging mother, visit my son often, like to travel and most importantly love to sing and dance!
I'm excited that you are in my class, I love to make learning fun!
