I am a licensed special education teacher (Learning Specialist) for the Structured Learning Services (SLS) classroom. I am always learning, growing, and improving my knowledge of autism. I am also licensed as a speech-language pathologist. My expertise is in understanding how speech and language delays play a role in a variety of disabilities. I have been employed in Adams 12 and at Westview Elementary since 2002. I am proud to be a Westview Wildcat because of the wonderful community of teachers, students, and families we have at Westview Elementary. In my free time I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, rock climbing, and scrapbooking. I live with my husband Gary, have two grown daughters, and one grandson.
