RTI Coach

RTI: Response to Intervention is a model that school's implement to help all learners succeed. For more information visit our State's DOE website!

Miss Maxwell's Photos

My favorite holiday is the 4th of July!

I love my dog, Lyman Ray!

I love my family!
Leslie is 24. She works in Special Education in a nearby high school. Meghan is 19. She is a freshman at Anderson University where she is majoring in Special Education and minoring in dance. Evan is 16. He is an extremely talented musician. He plays the bass guitar, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, various percussion instruments... and he can play my mandolin (which I can pluck occasionally) . He writes his own music and lyrics! My parents are both in the medical field: my mom is a medical transcriptionist and my dad is a lab technician.

My boyfriend is Craig. He works at a car dealership. He has a degree from Indiana University in Criminal Justice. Working with cars fits his outgoing personality. He loves cars and his motorcycle! We love spending time with his family, especially his niece!
