Elementary Intervention Specialist
Welcome to Glen Lake Elementary School! My name is Amy Johnson-Velis but here at school I'm known as Mrs. Johnson. Glen Lake is a consolidated school system serving the communities of Cedar, Maple City, Empire, and Glen Arbor, in lovely Leelanau County, Michigan. We are nestled in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore so our students have access to a variety of outdoor experiences. We house preschool through twelfth grade under one roof. This creates unique learning opportunities for our entire student body by providing multi-age collaboration. It also contributes to our mighty "Laker Pride" sense of community.
I am very fortunate to be Glen Lake's Elementary Intervention Specialist. My credentials include a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Continuing Certification in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a Master's Degree in Elementary School Counseling, which includes a State of Michigan counseling endorsement. Be it linking families to resources in our community, helping students organize homework, encouraging students to self advocate, managing our school's child study team, writing 504s, or facilitating friendship groups, my role as intervention specialist is to help students experience success in school. My hope is that this website will serve as a resource for you, but if I can help you in any other way please feel free to contact me.
