About Me



I believe all students can learn when they are equipped with the tools that they need. The teacher, through effective modeling and instruction, provides the students with these tools.

A good teacher will learn the needs of her students and use instructional methods that will ensure that their students grasp the skills being taught. Finally, it is also the teacher’s responsibility to motivate, and encourage students to be the best they can be.


I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Education and am certified to teach English to grades 7-12. I returned to school and earned a Masters in Special Education. I am certified to teach Special Education to students in grades K-12. I have also done extensive research in the area of Special Education and inclusion through my Doctoral Work in a Teacher Leadership program.


I have been teaching for 16 years. The courses I have taught include Reading/English Language Arts, Creative Writing, and Special Educaion with a focus on math and reading skills. Presently, my experiences have been working with students in grades 6th, 7th, and 8th.

The ability or skill level has ranged from below grade level to above grade level. The have taught Honor students, identified talented and gifted students as well as students with disablities including students with ADHD, emotional disorders, learning disablities, OHI, and physical disabilities.


I have worked as a student government advisor as well as a cheer leading coach at my various schools. On my own time, I enjoy playing the piano and reading. I have taught piano in the past as well.
