I am a Special Education High School Teacher. I completed my first year as a teacher in the Baltimore City School System and currently, I am searching for a position for a more specialized school position working with special needs children.

I enjoy teaching and feel like all kids deserve a chance to reach their full potential regardless of their abilities. I worked as Personal Assistant to several autistic students while completing my undergraduate degree and student taught in the City School System while completing my Master's Degree at the College of Notre Dame in Baltimore.

Education is a second career for me...something I have always wanted to do and am very fortunate that I have reached my goal. I look forward to assisting your child in reaching their goals!
