I pride myself with being a very structured, consistent, and fair teacher. I tried my best to meet the needs of every child in my care. I worked hard to individualize the curriculum, goals, and management of the classroom that best worked for each child. I believe that children learn best through hands-on age appropriate participation where they experience learning. I believe every child can learn when their needs are being met, the teacher is clear and sets high expectations, and classroom management is structured and consistent.

I have officially retired from teaching in SC after 28 years of Special Education. I have recently moved to Golden CO with my husband Watson. We have two grown children. Our daughter, son in law and only granddaughter live in NC. Our son and daughter in law live in Hawaii. I love being retired and living in such a beautiful place. I enjoy traveling, camping, and Art. I am practicing painting and drawing again after a very long time.
