Since the 2nd grade I wanted to be a teacher. Life didn’t take a straight trajectory to that career path but here I am! I was a stay at home mom for 12 years, followed by 5 years as a paralegal, 2 years a paraeducator and now a teacher since 2007. I am a certified paralegal, have a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and a Master’s degree in Secondary Education including endorsements in Special Education, Elementary Education, and CTE-ACE (Alternative Cooperative Education). Significant support needs is my passion, I love working with the variety of students in my classes and helping them make connections, as well as finding their own level of independence along the way. For this year I will teaching Math level 1, Language Arts level 1, Social Studies and Careers. Embedding life skills across the curriculum makes learning fun.
