Hello! I have been teaching Special Education since 2010. I teach Special Education Language Arts, Math and Study Skills. As well as support the General Education ELA teacher. I enjoy working with this population very much! No matter the day there is always happy faces!!
Defining Moments in Education
I knew I wanted to be a Special Education Teacher when I was in high school, when I worked at the YMCA Triangle Y Camp as the "Arts and Crafts Teacher". There was a little boy who was Autistic and struggled very much with being part of his cabin and just wanted to do art! Over the course of the week I really got to know him. At the end of the week he made me a robot out of beads, that I still have today hanging up in my classroom. He will forever be in my heart!
Core Education Belief
I believe that no matter what, every student deserves to have success and happiness in school. I do my best for all students to have success in class and are given the celebration and credit they earned!
