MISS HOLLY (Special Education Grades K–6)

Email Holly | 507-895-4054

Hi! My name is Holly Timm and I am the Kindergarten–6th Grade Special Education teacher at La Crescent Montessori and Stem School. I am an elementary education graduate from Marquette University.

I worked as a fourth grade teacher in Milwaukee as well as Physical Education teacher in Portland prior to teaching Special Ed. I loved both experiences, but feel passion is in Special Ed and Montessori.

When not at school, you can find me spending time with my four kiddos and our dog Chaco (preferably traveling, spending time on the water, hiking, running, volunteering or spending time with friends and family).

I am so thankful to be working with the amazing staff and students at LMSS.

MR. HOSKIN (Special Education Grades 7–12)

Email Ed | 507-895-4054

I am Ed Hoskin (or Mr. H around school) and I have taught Special Education at LMSS since 2015. I am originally from the United Kingdom, growing up there and graduating from the University of Wolverhampton with a bachelor’s degree in English with War Studies. I was a newspaper reporter for 12 years before attaining my teaching license from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.

I find teaching Special Education very rewarding and always interesting. I like the way students treat one another at LMSS. In my free time, I love watching, playing and coaching soccer. I enjoy most sports as well as cooking, traveling, camping and playing guitar.

About the Special Education Program

La Crescent Montessori & STEM School has educators licensed to provide special education and related services for those students who meet criteria and have special education needs.

Parents and students are directly involved with the school and appropriate outside agency staff in the development of the special education program and the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) for school-age children.

Students are eligible for special education services until the IEP Team decides to terminate services. Students remain with their general education peers in the least restrictive environment (LRE) to the extent the IEP Team determines is appropriate.

Special education program evaluation is accomplished through a single strategic plan to improve due process compliance and program results for students with disabilities.
