Special Education Teacher
Hi all! I am excited to be teaching Special Education here at Hart!! Prior to this, I taught 5 years in Kindergarten and 6 years in 1st grade at Hart. I have also taught in Rapid City, SD; Wichita Falls, TX; and Keflavik, Iceland.
I grew up in Graham, Tx and told my family in 1st grade that I wanted to be a teacher. I took a "detour" studying computer science before ultimately changing my major to Communication Sciences and Disorders. I quickly added my teaching certification and ultimately earned my Master's degree in Reading from the University of Sioux Falls. I also recently worked through Region 13 taking the autism circuit course online which included 60 hours of work with Evidence Based Practices.
I met my husband David while he was stationed at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls. He is now retired from the U.S. Air Force after serving 20 years and works in IT for Lifecare Hospitals in Plano. I have one amazing kiddo, Alex, who is now in 8th grade at Willow Springs. His passions include video games and learning to play Viola. My hobbies include reading and spending time with my family.
I truly cannot wait to meet your children and to learn about them!
