Special Education Teacher - Nelson Ridge
I have been teaching for 23 years. Teaching allows me to get to work with amazing students each day. I love having the chance to help students learn about themselves, including their strengths and finding confidence in themselves to work on areas that need more improvement.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, my husband, and our two yellow labs.
Started Working at NLSD:
I have 1 daughter, my husband, and 2 yellow labs Delilah and Jax.
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
All students can succeed with teamwork between the student, teacher, and parent. I believe every child can be successful. I love teaching because I get the opportunity to touch the lives of students and contribute to making their future one that is bright and productive.
