Elementary Education (2014)
Minor- Special Education
I am married to my high school sweetheart, and a mom of five boys ages 15, 16, 28, 20, and 21. My 18 year old has an intellectual disability but is an awesome communicator. I also have four step children ages 15, 22, 22, and 28.
I am a hard working, dedicated, and dependable educator who loves working with people of all ages though my heart is working with students with special needs. I have interests in launching invention ideas that will solve some everyday problems as well.
