My name is Michelle Barterian, and I am currently Director of Student Services at Conner Creek Academy East and Michigan Collegiate Middle and High School. I have been an Educator for over 30 years. I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education and from Saginaw Valley State University with a Master of Arts in Teaching Learning and Behavior Disorders. I currently hold Michigan certifications in Elementary Education K-8, Special Education K-12, and endorsements in teaching students with Learning Disabilities and Visual Impairment. In addition, I am approved by the State of Michigan as a Teacher Consultant and Supervisor in Special Education. During my career, I taught in both general and special education before moving into an administrative position at CCAE. I have a passion for what I do at CCAE and hope to continue to positively impact the quality of education for all students and, specifically, students with disabilities.
