Denise Bresee

My name is Denise Bresee.  This is my first year of teaching at Inman Intermediate and I am excited to be teaching 6th grade resource.  I have a bachelor degree from Grand Canyon University in special education and elementary education.  I also have a English as second language endorsement and hope to gain my masters degree in the very near future.  


I grew up in Ozark and graduated in 1984 from high school there.  I then married the love of my life and moved to Louisiana for a couple of years.  We moved back to Missouri in 1990 and I worked while my husband attended MSU and graduated in 1994.  Soon after I had boy/girl twins which are now 19.  When my children started elementary school I knew I wanted to be a big part of their education.  I began working as a paraprofessional at Fordland Elementary and loved every minute of it.  I was a Title I reading paraprofessional, one on one paraprofessional, food service secretary, and special education paraprofessional.  After my children entered high school, I decided to go back to college and earn my education degree to become a certified teacher.  I student taught in Seymour Missouri and last year worked in the Springfield School district at Jeffries Elementary and Sherwood Elementary.  I am so blessed to be a part of the Nixa School system and Inman Intermediate.  The love this community has for its school and educators is beyond any I have ever experienced.  


I have a passion for working with resource students as I struggled in school with math.  If I had been given the tools we have today, I might not have struggled as much.  I look forward to integrating technology into differentiated instruction to help my students find strategies to help them succeed and become amazing young girls and  boys.
