      Teaching is my passion! I have been inspired by teachers in my past and want to inspire the love of learning in ALL students. We are all learners, no matter how small or large the growth is, we are all learning. I love special education and although the kids may be rougher around the edges, there is a desire to be loved and to learn. My goal is to celebrate the learning in all my students and recognize the growth that they make throughout their years in school.

      I’ve been teaching for 11 years and still love the ups and downs of my special education classroom. I love the diverse children that I get to work with and I love seeing their growth, no matter how small it may seem. My students can be tough, but they each have a heart of gold and I love each and every one of them!
