Special Education

Welcome to the Special Education page, I’m Koerner, Special Ed Director.  I also teach special education and coach Quiz Bowl at our Middle/High School (grades 6-12).

I also assist with the coordination and reporting duties of our district’s entire special education program (grades TK-12).

I’m beginning my 7thth year at the MS/HS. I grew up in Grand Haven and it’s been a privilege to be a part of a great SPS staff.

As the special education teacher, my main duty is to make sure every student with a disability is given the opportunity and support to succeed.

And I’m grateful that I’ve never had to do this all alone.

Our entire staff shares a strong commitment to not let any of our students fall through the cracks if we can help it.

In my seven years at the MS/HS, I’ve marveled at the consistency in which our administrators, teachers, and support staff relate to all of our students in so many positive ways.

This in important, I believe, because when a whole staff works consistently in this manner, we are able to extend our reach to our students, and plant the seeds for their future success.

If I can answer any questions about our school, Quiz Bowl, the SPS special education program, or a special need your student may have, please call or email me.
