This will be my 10th year teaching here at Highland, and I am excited to get to know all of the new students and reconnect with the ones I have had the priviledge of working with over the last few years! I have a BA in Social Work, a Master's degree in Special Education, and 5 children of my own. I have been working with kids since I was about 16 years old when I volunteered at a preschool! I teach the resource level Language Arts and Math classes at the middle school. These classes include interventions and researched-based practices with programs and practices that have been found to produce effective outcomes for students that have been struggling in the school setting. There is a smaller teacher to student ratio that allows individual strengths and needs to be addressed due to the smaller class setting. I am excited to work with the Highland students and appreciate the support available in a smaller school district!
