I am so happy to be starting my 19th year at Avon Elementary! I am a licensed Early Childhood Special Education(ECSE) Teacher. I work primarily with preschool and kindergarten students who have qualified for special education services. I also have a license in the area of Specific Learning Disabilities(SLD). Most of my days are spent within the preschool and kindergarten classrooms, providing support so our students can be as successful as possible within their classrooms. I also provide some pull-out services to give students that extra boost and repetition that they need. I am so proud to be a part of the Albany Area School District. I truly love my job!
Outside of school I enjoy running, playing with my dog and spending time with my 18 year old son, Baden. The field of special education is very near and dear to my heart as my son has been receiving special education services since he was three years old. Baden helps me remember every day why I love this job so much!
