I have over 15 years of experience in the classroom, and hold certifications to teach K-12 Special Education and Middle School Mathematics. Over the last 15 years, I have worked for three districts, in self-contained, inclusion and general education settings.
To reach the students of today, I am a diligent student of all things technology. For the past several years, I have used a flipped classroom model in my middle school mathematics classes. This instructional model allows me more time to provide students with differentiated, hands-on practice in the classroom using engaging activities and projects. In the classroom, I use a variety of teaching activities to keep students engaged, including cooperative learning and independent activities.
**Finalist for Teacher of the Year **Nominated for Special Education Advisory Committee Special Education Teacher of the Year
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education (K-12) from the University of Evansville and a Master's Degree in Middle School Mathematics (6-8) from Walden University.
In addition to my career as an educator, I am a wife and mother to two in college. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, touring historical sites, painting and improving my own understanding of education technology and trends.
