I am a 12th year teacher currently teaching in a self-contained classroom for students with intellectual disabilities at a primary school (K-3) in Phoenix, AZ.
My teaching style is one of patience and understanding. I must meet the individual academic needs of each student and use direct instruction with a multisensory approach to lesson planning. It is always wonderful to help these students reach their goals and experience success!
Silver Apple Award awarded May 2010 by Channel 3 TV and Ace Air. A true honor because I was nominated by one of my 8th grade students!
I earned my BA in Special Education from Arizona State University in 2005. I went on to earn my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading from Grand Canyon University in 2007.
