I am excited about the prospect of working with you or someone you care about! I am certified to teach kindergarten through 6th grade and specialized in serving students with special needs. I enjoy working with students of all ages and hope that I may have the opportunity to help you as well. For two years I worked as an education assistant in a school serving special needs children. The last year I was in the school's severe autism room and saw tremendous growth in the children.
I also currently work for an agency providing respite services to families and work with children and young adults with various intellectual and physical challenges.

I am a certified elementary teacher after receiving my Bachelors of Science in elementary education with special education from Iowa State University. I worked for two years in an elementary school working closely with students.
As a high school student I was a member of both the debate and academic decathlon teams. In academic decathlon there is a speech and interview component and always received high scores in these activities. In college I competed on the school's mock trial team and qualified for nationals. I also went out to schools and taught about science in small and large group settings in addition to taking a speech class.
I have a special education teaching license from Iowa. I spent two years working in a school that only served children with special needs. I also provided respite services for families and worked with children with a range of special needs including down's syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders and others.
As a high school student I participated in a play on stage. In other performances I helped out with other various responsibilities off stage. In college I participated in a touring drama production that traveled from city to city. I also competed in debate and mock trial both of which use components of theater to present your position on the issues being discussed.
