My name is Christy Klein.  I currently teach at Starr Commonwealth School in Albion, MI.  I have been teaching at Starr since 1987.  Prior to that, I taught at Albion Public School for three years. 

In my current role, I serve as a Teacher Consultant.  I am charged to assess and help teachers develop interventions for their students.

I graduated from Marshall High School in MI in 1978.  I graduated from Olivet College in 1982 with a BA in English and Minor in Biology.  I receieved my MA in SPED (EI and LD) in 1984.

I am taking this course to broaden my understanding of how to collect assessment data so t hat it will allow me to be more proficient with developing good interventions.

I am from a family of five childrens.  I am the first girl, second child.  My mom wasa stay at home mom who went on to college when I was in college.  My dad has been in education/coaching for over 40 years.

My career goals are to work more with teachers and students in the classroom and in small groups.

Thanks for sharing Christy, I'm sure with the awesome reporting tools DataDirector has to offer, you'll be able to find one or two areas in need of intervention!
