I am a special education teacher in my 7th year of teaching. I have experience teaching in Illinois (3 years), California (2 years), and in Texas (starting my 2nd year now!). Here's the thing, folks... kids are kids, regardless of where you live. They all need love and teachers who CARE! I have taught various subjects at the high school and middle school levels, with most of my experience being in English and in Math. I also work with kids who have behavior issues and provide direct instruction in social skills. I love my career and working with my kiddos each day.
I am especially passionate about reaching the "tough" kiddos and those who have become disengaged in school. I strive to make my lessons meaningful to my students' lives by making connections between their own interests and experiences to the content being taught.

I have a bachelor's degree in special education from Southern Illinois University. Go Salukis!
I currently live in the Dallas, Texas area with my husband, my two year old son, and my dog. I love to go on walks, shop, cook, and spend time with my friends and family.
