My Students

The students that I work with in our small community are willing and compassionate about achieving academic success through hands-on-learning and individualized instruction. My students vary with many different needs and goals to achieve academic success.

It is my mission to create an innovative, dedicated, safe and caring environment for them to achieve their desired goals to become successful future community members.

Due to our small school atmosphere and comfortable environment we provide, students and their families love it here!

My Project

Being a Special Education teacher is a tough yet VERY rewarding career. Everyday supplies become expensive to provide. Having these basic supplies that we use every day will help my students become willing and successful learners. Students have proved to learn in a calming environment with soft lighting; many have sensory issues and working with scented markers is a great tool! Laminating pouches and velcro help our projects and activities last longer, lined paper helps us learn to write, sticky notes provide fun hands-on learning activities!

EVERY child can learn when given the tools and supplies to do so!

I would love to offer my students more fun and engaging opportunities to learn and succeed!
