I have taught in General Education, Special Education, and ESL classrooms. I became a teacher later in life after working as a Special Events Coordinator for a major children's health charity and being a teacher's aide for several years.
In my classroom I make a concerted effort to get to know my students. The relationships I create with my students make me a better teacher. While I am tough and have high expectations, I also always leave my door open for "my kids" - whether they need help academically or personally.
2016 Teacher of the Year
BA in Mass Communications and Minor in Sociology.
I am a busy mom of two active daughters. Reading and writing are passions of mine. There is nothing like a good book to finish off my day! In the day of texting and Snapchatting, I encourage my kids to still use written words - actual, full sentences - to communicate.
