About Me:

My name is Denise Ver Steeg and I have been a Special Education teacher in the Minnewaska district for 20 years.   My licensure areas are:  Specific Learning Disability (SLD) and Developmental Cognitive Disability-Mild to Moderate (DCD-MM). 

I am married and have three children (16, 14 & 11) and live in the Glenwood/Starbuck area.

My Philosophy of Education:

I believe that every child has the potential to bring something unique and special into the world.   I want to share my passion of learning with my students and help them understand that learning is a lifelong process.   My goal is to make learning fun for students and to help them discover and build on their individual strengths.  I believe that every child can and will learn.  







 Each of us has a capacity to help others discover the colors in their very own rainbow...
