I just began my 12th year of teaching special education!

Yet to be added
I graduated from University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education: K-12. I finished all but an internship in a master's for Vocational Rehabilitation and an emphasis in rehabilitation counseling.
I have three wonderful children and an amazing husband. They keep me grounded and remind me that family always goes first no matter how much I love my job as a teacher.
