All About Me.....

"Why fit in when YOU were born to STAND OUT" ~Dr. Seuss

Working with children who have exceptional needs and behavioral needs, has taught me to appreciate the little things in life. Laugh when others get angry, accept behaviors as actions not character traits, and believe in the impossible! Each milestone met is a goal achieved and each bump in the road is merely a reminder that we are all human! I have an Undergraduate degree in Special Education (K-12) and a Masters degree in Psychology- Applied Behavior Analysis.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my husband and family. My sister and her husband gave us the gift of a nephew in November 2019 and he is so much fun! We have 4 dogs and 2 cats! Needless to say, we love animals!

My Beautiful Family & Furbabies

I realize that all children are different and learn in different ways. All children are successful in ways that are unique to them and who they are. I have a strong passion for helping struggling students. I too, was a struggling student in school. I know how it feels to struggle and not want to go to school. That is why I can and do hold high expectations of my students and myself as their advocate! “Different, not less”, in the words of Temple Grandin is the motto I use not only in teaching but in life!
