Hi there!  

This is my ninth year with the New Prague School District.  Previously I taught for five years as a special education teacher in Shakopee.  Prior to working in the public schools I was a Program Supervisor at a private center for children on the autism spectrum.  I was born in New York and have spent the first half of my life in the North East.  I earned degrees in elementary education as well as music at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire.  I received my license and masters in learning disabilities (K-12) through St. Thomas University in 2007.  I am also licensed under the category of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

My husband, Adam, and I have four beautiful children.  My oldest is at the Middle School this year and two of my children will be here with me at Eagle View.  My youngest son goes to daycare here in Elko New Market.  Our family has a dog, Bella, two bunnies, a pet frog, and lots of salt water fish.  Some of my favorite activities are reading good books, singing on the praise and worship team at our church, and playing outdoors with our children.  

It is my belief that a good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort among parent, child and teacher.  You as the parent play a major role in helping your child reach the maximum of his or her potential.  By working together, I believe we can all help your child become the best person possible – socially, emotionally and scholastically.
