Bio

I have 18+ years as a special education teacher including providing transition to life skills for adulthood; over 4 years as a general, math and science elementary classroom teacher, including over 3 years as a curriculum and instructional leader and administrator.  I establish and develop strong relationships with students and communicate with parents regularly about their child's learning progress, needs, and concerns.  I conduct interventions and tutorial sessions based on data analysis of student performance.  I enjoy working collaboratively with parents, school, and community committees on all student learning and success.
