About Me

This fall marks the beginning of my 30th year in education. I have served the students of Columbia County since 2007. I am currently serving as the Special Education Specialist for Martinez Elementary School and Evans Middle School. I hold degrees in Special Education, Middle Grades Education (science concentration) and a degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught both general education and special education throughout my career. I realize that each year brings challenges and this year is certainly no exception. I am looking forward to partnering with teachers, administrators and parents to provide the best learning experience for our students with disabilities.
