Hello! This year I will be trying something new and teaching .5 special education and .5 English Language Development. This will be my 11th year as a teacher. Previously I have taught Early Childhood Special Education for both inclusion and center based programs. I am originally from Grand Rapids Michigan where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education & Special Education Emotional Impairments with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education and my Master’s Degree in Intellectual disabilities.Outside of work I love to travel, explore in nature, and of course, read.
