Ms. Jill Quinn
K-5 Title1 Interventionist
2020 has been a crazy year, right!? I hope to spend this year finding new ways to support students, parents and teachers; making life a little less challenging and learning a lot more fun.
Nine years ago, I started teaching at Desert Sage as a SpEd Resource Instructor before switching to my current position as a Title1 Interventionist in 2016. I work with students in small groups and within their classrooms to overcome challenges they have with reading, writing, math and sometimes behaviors. I enjoy thinking outside of the box to help others minimize and resolve their academic challenges while finding and maximizing their strengths in other areas. My favorite part of my job is watching the joy and pride on a student's face after working hard to overcome a challenge, wrestling with it in "the learning pit", and then realizing they CAN do it!

It seems essential to value hard work and determination and yet recognize that the road to excellence is littered with mistakes and subsequent lessons. Imperfection and excellence are intertwined. There is joy in our pain, strength in weakness, courage in compassion, and power in forgiveness.”
