I have had the pleasure of being an Early Childhood Special Education teacher, with a background in Speech and language pathology for the past ten years. I am an enthusiastic, versatile, and compassionate educator, and advocate for my students. I strive to promote the development of all learning styles, by meeting students where they are, and providing them with developmentally appropriate, engaging, and hands-on activities. I believe in helping students become confident in who they are, so that they can achieve the growth in their area(s) of need. My objective is to provide my students with a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment, so that they can develop a love for learning and acquire the skills to become lifelong learners.

I have two beautiful daughters that love to take long walks and play at the park. I love doing arts and crafts, and baking with my kids. I love trying healthy recipes, and love to scrap book with my older daughter. In my spare time, I also enjoy running.
