I am a graduate of Westfield State University with my Bachelors of Art in Moderate/Mild Special Education K-8. I have been teaching for 5 years as both a resource Special Education Teacher and an Intensive Special Education Teacher in an Alternative School. Most recently, I have graduated with my Master's Degree from Concordia University at St. Paul in Special Education concentrated on Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. I am passionate about creating a safe and inclusive environment where students feel welcomed and supported. I believe this is necessary for learning to occur. I most enjoy teaching Reading, as it opens immense possibilities and worlds for students to enter, and Writing as it helps students express themselves in a new way. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy exploring the ocean with my family at the beach or on a sailboat.
