• My name is Mrs. Finneran and I love what I do in West Bloomfield! I am an English Language Development (ELD) teacher that works with students who speak another language or whose families speak another language at home. I help students learn the academic language needed to be successful in school. I also work with teachers to develop lessons and assessments that are even more accessible for all students. 

    I attended Kalamazoo College where I played basketball and studied Spanish, math and teaching. I have a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Madonna University and a master’s degree in Athletic Administration from Wayne State University.

    I have been to 49 states, can you guess which one I have left to visit? I lived and studied in Spain and Guatemala. I’ve traveled to Europe, Africa, India and Dubai, maybe Japan will be next!

    This year I will be at Orchard Lake Middle School in the mornings and Scotch Elementary in the afternoons. Stop by and say "Hi" or contact me to let me know how I can help, that's what I am here for!
