I have proudly taught Special Education Resource at West Side Elementary school since 2012. I enjoy watching my students grow in their academic knowledge. I especially delight when they have "ah-ha" moments!
I was born in Auburn, New York, but my family moved to Kingsport, Tennessee when I was a small child. I graduated from Sullivan South High School. I worked in the mental health and medical fields while earning a BS in Professional Studies at ETSU. One of my children was diagnosed with a disability as I was completing my last semester of my BS program of study. This inspired me to obtain a MEd in Special Education at ETSU.
I have been married to my husband Dan since 2002. We are parents to Jarred, Madison, twins Nicholas and Katrina, and our pug Izzy. I enjoy singing, reading, counted cross stitch, spending time with my family, and serving as a youth sponsor at my church.
