Currently I am a behavior specialist working with children and enjoy using discrete trial instruction to increase the success rate of learning new information as well as increase attention to task. In the past, I was a preschool teacher right out of college and a preschool teacher assistant throughout college. I enjoy teaching new skills and topics as well as creating a fun learning environment. I am a true believer in individualized learning plans and change my approach depending on how each child learns.

My undergraduate degree was a Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Studies and my graduate degree is a Masters of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis. I have been able to mix both disciplines to help me in my day to day job working with children. I understand their developmental levels and needs and am able to find functions of behavior as well as discover the motivational factors needed to have a child attend to a task and learn in their own way.

Throughout college and the past few years I have taught and worked with children individually and in groups ranging in ages of 3 to 21. I've had the opportunity to have a refresh on how lessons are being taught in schools in recent years and had the opportunity to find new approaches for children to grasp and build upon the information they are learning.
