I have a Bachelor's in Education from Quincy University, a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Southwest Baptist University and an Ed. Specialist degree from Arkansas State University. As you can tell, I'm a lifelong learner! I have certifications in the areas of early childhood, elementary education, middle school math, middle school communication arts, middle school social studies, and K-12 special education. I live in Hannibal with my husband, two teenage boys, our cat and our dog! I enjoy spending time with family, reading, and cooking/baking.

Janelle Fuller

My name is Janelle Fuller and I am a special education teacher at HMS. I have been at HMS since 2019. I co-teach in different classrooms to help the students who might need a little extra help or who need certain accommodations met for them to succeed in the regular classroom. I love being able to help the students who are struggling or who find school to be difficult and then seeing them feel successful with the help they receive from myself and the regular education teacher. I live in Quincy and have lived there for a very long time. I taught Middle School for 34 years in Mendon, IL and then retired. The opportunity to teach at Hannibal came up and I am very excited that it did and I was able to continue teaching. I graduated from John Wood Community College with my Associate’s Degree, Quincy College (now University) with my Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Quincy University with my Master’s Degree in Administration. I love reading, walking, jigsaw puzzles, clowns, and dogs. I am not married, I do not have any children but I have my Mom,  nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and many great friends. I have had several dogs in the past but don’t have one at this time. I see a puppy in the near future!
