She does her best to keep active with things like running, kayaking and bicycling.   

Lanna attended Western Michigan University, and has a Master’s degree in Special Education. She is currently teaching teenage students with autism, in a separate special needs school. She loves teaching and looks forward to her job every day!  In her classroom they use many teaching strategies such as; Discrete Trials, Pivotal Response Techniques and Positive Behavior Supports.  In Michigan, children with special needs may attend school until they are 26 years old.
