Mr. Don Poole

My name is Don Poole, Intervention Specialist at Pattengill Elementary School.

It's my pleasure and honor to work with students every day. I also work in harmony with parents, teachers, staff, and administration to find ways to best support students. 

A few ways I support students are: 

  • Check students' academic records
  • Monitor students' academic progress
  • Connect families with resources to benefit the student and family
  • Manage behavioral issues
  • Positive support plans for students

I attended Eastern Michigan University where I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Criminology with a concentration in Social work. I also have a degree in Public Human Services. 

I have 26 years of experience working with students, 22 of those years working for Washtneaw County Juvenile Court and Children's Services.
