I am an experienced and dedicated special education teacher skilled at developing student relationships, creating positive learning environments and implementing individualized curriculum to maximize student success.
I currently work as a behavior specialist, providing behavior, classroom management and social supports to teachers and students in kinder through 6th grade classrooms. Prior to teaching, I worked as a music therapist in a private practice serving children with developmental disabilities.
I believe all students have the power to be successful students when provided with the right tools and supports. I enjoy creating curriculum and materials that help support all students.
