I have been working in special education for 28 years and in 5 different states. For me, the classroom is special, a place where I feel like I am part of a larger "Family". My personal philosophy is that the most effective growth and development for any child comes from a collaboration between the home, the school and the community. Our classroom team strives for this daily.
My husband and I moved to the Treasure Valley in 2007. We love the area and are very happy to be here. We like to spend our personal time hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, camping, going to great music events, skiing, bird watching and more.
I am grateful to the family members of my students and to my River Valley colleagues for allowing me to be part of this new experience.
Education is a journey, not a destination.
