I received my Bachellor and Master's degrees from Indiana State University. I taught for several years in Indiana, supporting students with emotional disabilities. I took some years off to enjoy my family and raise our four beautiful daughters and returned to work in 2003 at Cherry Drive Elementary School as a Learning Specialist. In 2011, we opened up an Affective Needs Program at Cherry Drive and I taught in this program for 6.5 years. I am now excited to be one of the full time Learning Specialists (Special Education Teachers) at Riverdale Elementary. I am so passionate and absolutely love teaching students who struggle academically and behaviorally and look forward to working with teachers, families and students this year!
In my free time, I love hiking, camping, reading, watching movies, drinking lots of coffee (at Starbucks preferably!), cooking, baking and most of all, hanging out with my husband, my four beautiful daughters and two adorable grandsons.
