Ms. Wendy Maier, First Grade EA
(Ms. Jill's Crew)
Hi! My name is Wendy Maier, and I am an Educational Assistant at REMS. I started at REMS as a Special Education Assistant last November, and quickly felt quite at home at the school. I love the feeling of Community, and immediately felt like I was part of the school.
Prior to working at REMS, I was a Signing Special Ed. Asst. at the Douglas County Deaf and Hard of Hearing Preschool for 5 years. I used sign language there on a daily basis with both the children and adults, and thoroughly loved my time there. It was far from home, however, and the drive began to take its toll on me...and my gas tank! That's is when I found REMS, which is much closer to home, and has also challenged me professionally. My entire career, prior to REMS, has been spent in Early Childhood. I have been a Classroom Teacher, a Child Care Assistant Director, and a Child Care Director. I was also a personal nanny for 5 years. My college degree is in Psychology, with an emphasis on Child Development.
I am happy to be a part of REMS!
