Alise Butzen (Garrison) - Speech Language Pathologist

College(s):  Eastern Illinois University, Eastern Kentucky University

Teaching History: I started my career working for Easter Seals in an outpatient rehabilitation clinic in Kentucky. I started my career in the elementary school setting last year in another district.

Family: I just recently got married in June to my amazing husband, Donnie. I have two dogs! My parents are back home in Illinois and my two older brothers live out in California.

Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I love to be outside. Whether it be hiking, biking, walking the fur babies, or sitting on our deck. I love being creative by painting or drawing. My favorite thing to do though is to workout.

Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I love that the program focuses on the whole child development. I believe that in order for a student to be able to fully learn to their potential, they need to be socially and emotionally available. I also LOVE that it instills the importance of acceptance of ALL individuals regardless of their differences. This will help create a supportive learning environment, build relationships, and develop caring and compassionate community members.
