My 23 year career has included varied experiences ranging across general education and special education. I have been a third grade teacher, a resource teacher, behavior specialist, behavior consultant, and tech support for other educators.
I am a compassionate, but, firmly consistent teacher who believes all children can learn. I enjoy thinking outside the box to find strategies or create solutions to get through to even the most challenging student.

I am the lucky mom to two teenage sons, who both also have ADHD, so accommodating comes naturally both at home and at school. I was fortunate enough to have spent 11 years teaching the students with the most challenging behaviors in my school and finding ways to help them learn. Additionally, I've observed in numerous classrooms in order to provide consult on how best to reach those students who struggle with trauma, mental health concerns, or behavioral challenges.
