Hi! My name is Joni Van Ginkel. I teach special education in the Middle School. I graduated from Northwestern College with a secondary English degree and a middle school endorsement in 2007. After a family member suffered a traumatic brain injury, I felt called to special education, and I obtained my masters in special education from Morningside College in 2014.
My mission is to provide a quality education to my students while I empower them to reach their individual potential, and to value and respect themselves and others.
