My work in general education has been as a teaching assistant, and intervention specialist to help students learn strategies to reach their academic goals. I have also earned my certification in English as a Second Language, and taught overseas in Thailand. Most recently I have completed my Master's Degree in the Art of Teaching. Currently I am working at an early intervention preschool.

I have 20 years of experience in education, with many in the field of Autism. My work in general education has been as a teaching assistant, and intervention specialist to help students learn strategies to reach their academic goals. I have also earned my certification in English as a Second Language, and taught overseas in Thailand. Most recently I have completed my Master's Degree in the Art of Teaching. Currently I am working at an early intervention preschool.
Through my students I have learned to have more patience and diligence, which I hope I instill in them as we work to achieve success through attainable goals.
On the personal side, reading and hiking are my two favourite activities. I also enjoy historical research, baking, going to the movies and spending time with family and friends. Other hobbies include traveling and photography.
