Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Joanna Timtishin

Welcome to Ms. Timtishin’s classroom! I am so excited to meet all of you. This will be my 24th year teaching special education and my 1st year at Sayen Elementary School.  I am a member of the community in Hamilton Township and have three children of my own attending in the district. I am so excited to work with your child this year.  We will have so much fun learning and growing together!

Important Classroom Information:

Please be on the lookout for an invitation to join our Class Dojo.  I use the app to send notifications about important things happening in our classroom.  I will also include photos of fun learning experiences that take place in our classroom for students who have permission to share photos!


This year we will be doing school work on the computer regularly. We would like to keep the devices at school to eliminate the children having to carry them back and forth daily and we can keep them in a safe location to charge.  Please let me know if there is any reason that you would like to make alternate plans for your child’s device.
