"I am a true lover of teaching and learning! Throughout my 15 years of teaching, I have found myself on both sides of the spectrum...the one who is doing the teaching and the one who is constantly learning.

My initial certification was as a special education teacher which allows me to teach all subjects and grade levels (K-12) in the self contained, resource and co-teaching settings.
