Hi, my name is Janelle Hartwig. I am excited to start working at Windsor Elementary. This will be my 3rd year of teaching special education and I have loved every minute of it. I dual majored in special education and elementary education thought Grand Canyon University. I purchased my first home last year during early covid in Beaverdale and have really enjoyed being in the area. I have a dog named Luna, she’s 2.5 years old. She’s beyond spoiled! I love camping, gardening and pretty much anything outdoors. I’m looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year!
