I have taught in Structured Learning Programs and Self-Contained Kindergarten for the past 14 years. I started teaching Early Elementary Grades and have moved to Early Childhood Special Education.
I try to integrate as much as I can into a lesson. I use fine motor and speech activities to expand learning opportunities for my students. I focus a lot on behavior in my classroom. I like to be proactive to behaviors by providing positive support and modeling.

I am also a HUGE fan of the Chicago Blackhawks. I love to watch the games (especially when I am at the games) and cheer on the Hawks!! My family loves to wear our Blackhawks Gear and dance to Chelsea Dagger!
