Ms. Sarah Reinhardt

Hello! I'm Sarah Reinhardt. This year, I will be teaching in the K-1 Autism classroom. I grew up in Ellicott City, MD and attended school in Howard County. After high school, I earned my undergraduate degree in Special Education at Towson University. I completed my master's degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from Ball State University. Prior to Westover, I worked in Baltimore County schools in the Autism program. This summer, I drove across the country attending concerts and book signings. Besides music and reading, I love attending sporting events and playing softball. I am so excited to continue my journey at Westover and I look forward to a wonderful school year.

Ms. Sue DeZeeuw

Hello! My name is Sue De Zeeuw, and I am joining the autism staff as a long-term substitute teacher in the 3rd-5th grade classroom. I moved from Michigan a year and a half ago where I taught middle school and coordinated student support for 20 years. After moving, I tried subbing in autism classrooms and loved it! I have a teaching degree from Calvin University and a master's degree from Eastern Michigan University. I enjoy being a grandma, gardening and reading. I look forward to the
new school year!
