“Over recent years, I have worked as a Special Education Teacher, which helped me determine where my path was headed.

My favorite things about being an educator are watching children light up when they make connections and their never-ending imaginations. Children encounter challenges and watching them overcome those obstacles and grow is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

I love building relationships and helping each student’s individual needs no matter what they are.  Making learning fun and memorable for all kids is my objective day-to-day. I love working with kids and I love being an educator for an organization that puts the care and education of the children first.”
