Welcome to Resource Room 214

Ms. Janis Pettit, Special Education Resource Teacher, Howe Community School

I have taught in the Hiawatha Community School system for three years; prior to that I taught at Nellie Stone Johnson, Cityview, and Edison PPL.  I was also a building reserve teacher at Ericksson Elementary for one year.  I was educated in Elementary Education at Ball State University, Iowa State University and received a B.S. from the University of Minnesota.  I attended the University of St. Thomas and earned licenses in Speical Education for Emotional/Behavior Disorder and Specific Learning Disabilities.  I believe all students CAN learn and deserve every opportunity to discover how they learn best.  I work with students in small groups and teach them strategies that are customized to their learning styles.  If you would like to contact me, the best method is by email:   Janis.Pettit@mpls.k12.mn.us
