 You and Together: 

Hello and welcome! I'm so glad you're here.

 

I am a special education teacher at a Title 1 school in Utah. I earned my MAT in elementary education and my M.Ed. in special education with a severe license. My undergraduate degrees are in English and fine art.

 

I currently work in a self-contained K-4 functional academics classroom, which enables me to build rapport with students and families for up to five years. I love teaching and creating materials to make my classroom function smoothly and am constantly looking for ways to streamline systems, so I can prioritize students. Relationships are foundational. My goal is to lead with my heart as well as my mind and teach my students to do the same.

This site is a compilation of resources I wish I'd had when I first entered the classroom five years ago.
