Special Education Teacher
">I teach a self-contained elementary special education classroom designed to support the needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. This is my fourth year teaching and I have experience in preschool intervention as well as elementary special education. My professional passions include embedding behavioral strategies into the classroom, designing methods for differentiation and inclusion, and training staff in best practices for students with ASD. In my free time, I enjoy being with my husband, Trent, and our two dogs, Gracie and Stark.
