Currently, I am the Grant Project Manager, for the Federally Funded Department of Education Turnaround School Leaders Program Grant. I also teach Special Education and Tier III Interventions at a Michigan Public Elementary School. I am also a wife and mother of two adorable elementary-age children! Last but not least, in my spare time, I am a full-time doctoral student in Special Education and Administration!
I have been equipped with a vast knowledge of how children learn and what learning environments they excel in through my education, research and many teaching experiences. This knowledge coupled with my desire for children to have the best education and school experiences has stirred a vision in me to impact many children through innovative methods of teaching and individualized instruction. I feel that it is essential to share this experience and passion with students, parents, educators, and administration.
