About the Teacher

Hello, let me tell you about myself!

This will be my 5th year teaching at Stevenson Elementary, but my 10th year teaching students with multiple disabilities. I graduated from Illinois State University with my bachelor's degree in Special Education (LBS1) in 2005, and master's degree in Sepcial Education in 2020. I also hold endorsements as a Learning Behavior Specialist II (LBS2) in Multiple Disabilities, and Special Education Early Childhood. In the fall of 2020 I'll be starting another masters program at ISU in the field of Teaching and Learning. 

My husband and I live in Bloomington with our three kids and two dogs. My husband's family has roots in Bloomington-Normal but I grew up in a military family. I've lived in Hawaii, Califonia, and Okinawa, Japan, but when I was nine my family finally settled in Southern California. I've been in Illinois for since 2002 and while I miss the beaches and temperate weather I love witnessing the changing seasons in the Midwest! My family loves to travel and see new places. Road trips are a favorite holiday activity to explore various places in the U.S.!
