18 years of experience in Special Education, inclusion and resource (pull out). I have taught students with varying disabilities. Most recently I started teaching in a full inclusive classroom again. I teach all students in the room, gifted as well as those that may struggle.
I would consider my teaching style as a facilitator. I love to present problems to students and guide their learning process. I believe all children can learn when a variety of activities are presented in many different ways.

I am happily married to my best friend and have four children. The oldest is in basic training, the youngest in 5th grade. My children are active in sports and studio dance, so my husband and I are always on the go. I also LOVE to read just about anything I can get my hands on.
