Tammy Mcilveen
Ohio Curriculum Specialist
Getting students involved and interested in their learning process is my passion! I taught special education in public elementary, middle, and high schools for 24 years. I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education, and received my Masters as a Reading Specialist from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.

I’m loving my time with Social Studies School Service. These programs are highly engaging with tons of interactive activities that enables students on all learning levels to feel successful. In addition to my love of working with teachers and students, I love spending time with my family and being a mother to my daughter and son. I am constantly attending field hockey, football, or lacrosse games for my kids. They keep me very busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
