Greetings!  My name is Deanna Sikkink.  I have a BS in Business Administration and went to Bethel University for my Masters in Teaching Special Education K-12 for Learning Disabilities and Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities.  I have been working at East Central K-6 E/BD since 2011.  For over three decades I have worked and lived with children living with issues related to mental health and difficulty with social thinking. I love working with our youth no matter what age.  I enjoy the ambiguity students bring to each day and the relationships built with them and with their families.  It is such a joy to see a student's growth in social thinking awareness of how special they really are, and to watch them grow with a desire to impact situations around them in a positive way. 

I have been married to my 5th grade sweetheart for over 28 years.  We have been blessed with the opportunity to raise 7 busy children and have 5 grandchildren.  Our family spends its time being active in our church, mission trips, camping, and working on the farm.  I enjoy jigsaw puzzles, scrap-bookkeeping, and sewing. When I grow up I would like to someday write children's books.
