Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Chisham

I am so excited to be here at River Birch this year.  I am the IMPACT Program Director here; myself and my wonderful team, work with students who are on grade level, but deal with emotional disabilities.   My background is in Elementary Education and in 2012 I received my MA in Special Education from St. Francsis University.  I am a recent transplant from Fort Wayne, where I taught Functional Skills students age K through 5 grade for Fort Wayne Community Schools.  I previously used my Elementary Education as a Preschool Director for 18 years.  All of this has taught me that my true passion lies with helping families and supporting their children by giving them the tools and opportunities to be better learners and humans.  I am married with 3 grown children and this past Fall I became a "Mimi" for the first time.  I hope to be here at River Birch for many years and also to get to know all the students in and out of the IMPACT room.
