Ms. Kushik-Sinclair's 19 years as a learning specialist started back in Boston at the high school level, leading her to all the awesome adventures that middle school has to offer, from teaching in Denver, Maine, and most recently, Steamboat Springs! She began her teaching with a degree in Kinesiology from James Madison University, Virginia. Inspired, she quickly discovered her passion and got her master’s in Special Education from the University of Colorado at Denver. Jo will be co-teaching English Language Arts classes at the 6th, 7th and 8th-grade levels this year!
Jo loves spending time with her family and friends, whether it be outside in the mountains or lost in the city, making art, baking, playing soccer or just hanging out at the nearest concert. She is most proud of her 6-year-old daughter, River, who loves to dance and sing whenever she gets a chance. She and her family are so excited to be apart of the grizzly community!
