SPED Team List

My name is Wendy Rhodes. (Students usually try to call me Mrs. Rose.) I'm super excited to be a Bissett Bobcat. This is my 10th year teaching at SPS. Before I became a teacher, I worked as a paraprofessional. My first day working as a para led me directly to special education. The past 9 years, I've worked as a Cross-Cat teacher; this school year I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the new Multiple Disabilities classroom at Bissett Elementary. Fun fact: I own a cow that loves to eat bananas.
I have been a Speech Language Pathologist for 17 years. I graduated from Missouri State University, and live here in Springfield Missouri. I get to be married to my best friend Jared, and have 3 interesting children, two of which are teenagers (an artist and a gamer), and a five year old (current occupation: rock star princess). We love to watch movies, take hikes, play games, go swimming, create art, and visit new places! I look forward to meeting you and learning about you and your families!
