Special Education teacher who believes all kids can succeed with the right strategies, tools and supports! My diverse teaching background- regular and special education classes, self contained and resource, private and public, rural and urban, has helped shaped me into the teacher I am! I believe in building strong relationships with kids, and utilizing the best resources to help them see success! My school is an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme School. Our curriculum is aligned with the CCSS. We also use Love and Logic along with PBIS.
Inquiry based. Student driven. Relationship building. Helping all students succeed.

I am blessed and lucky to completely love my job. When I am not teaching you can find me reading, cheering on the Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers, hanging with my Spanish Teacher husband, crafting, hitting the gym or volunteering with my Alpha Xi Deltas or Autism Speaks. I love blue, green and yellow, anything chevron, and have a wicked bag collection.
