This will be my 6th year at Symons and my 8th year teaching special education; including a two year hiatus in Houston, TX. As a TC at Symons, my role is to work with classroom teachers, support staff, and our administrators in order to foster an inclusive learning environment for all students; including acting as case manager for students with learning differences. I graduated from MSU with both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in special education with a minor in English and literature. I am a member of Washtenaw ISD's Study of Early Literacy and enjoy writing for pleasure in my free time.
When I am not at school, I am spending time at home with my son, husband, and two dogs. We love spending time outside and enjoying the activities each season brings. I also enjoy reading, cooking, yoga, and spending time with my friends and fellow teachers.
