Ms. Elizabeth Thorjusen, Special Education
Greetings and welcome! I am Elizabeth Thorjusen, special education and math teacher. This will be my 17th teaching. I received my B.S. in Psychology from Spring Hill College in 1989, and my M.Ed. in public policy from Ashford University in 2012. I attained national board certification in 2010 as an Exceptional Needs Specialist. I am currently pursuing my PhD. in Instructional Design and Development at the University of South Alabama.
I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma where my dad’s side of the family is from, but have deep roots in this area from my mother’s side. I have a daughter, Phoebe, who graduated from the Alabama School of Math and Science and is currenlty a senior at Auburn University. We love traveling, going to the beach, and pretty much anything outdoors. We have a dog, Zingo, and a cat, Sputnik.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching and make every effort to meet the individual needs of my students, with the long-term goal of making them successful citizens.
