Hello! My name is Darl Vander Meulen, and this is my 19th year teaching at Paw Paw Middle School. I graduated from Trinity Christian College, a small college south of Chicago, and I am certified to teach English Language Arts and computers. I also earned my Master’s Degree in Teaching in the Middle School from Western Michigan University.I have two sons, ages 17 and 19, who attend Portage Northern High School and WoodsEdge Learning Center. They are both in the self-contained room for Cognitively Impaired students. Both boys have a rare syndrome called Cornelia deLange Syndrome or CdLS for short. They both have mild versions of the syndrome, and their greatest struggle is with verbal communication and academic ability.
