This is my 18th year as a Special Education teacher working with students with Emotional Disabilities. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in May, 2000. I began my teaching career in Michigan prior to moving to Arizona in 2006. I also have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Phoenix. During my years of teaching, I have worked with students in all grade levels K-12. The last 10 years have been at a High School level. 

I am also on the District team of trainers for PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports)  I really enjoy working with teachers in learning effective strategies to support students' success in the classroom.
