Bio:

This is my fourteenth year as a teacher, eleventh in White County. After beginning my career in secondary English, I was motivated to pursue a path in special education because of my son, Brady. Raising a child like Brady has opened my eyes and heart to those around us who face different challenges. I greatly enjoy learning and sharing knowledge regarding different disabilities and the best practices to help students find success in the classroom and beyond. I want parents to know I will be an advocate for their children, and I look forward to helping all my students find success at White County High School.
