I am a licensed Special Education Teacher (Learning Specialist) at Westview Elem. I have been teaching Special Education in Adams 12 since 2004. I have taught in Iowa and Nebraska. I teach Math, Reading and Writing throughout the day to the students that have special needs. I have been trained in several additional math classes such as AddVantage Math and Number Worlds Math curriculum. This gives me additional insight in how children learn Math. I have also been trained in Leveled Literacy, which is a reading curriculum, along with many other reading programs to assist children in reading. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree at Dana College in Blair, NE in Elementary Ed and Special Ed. I received my Special Education Masters degree at the Univ. of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS in Emotional and Behaviorally Disordered. I have been teaching Special Education since 1991. Other responsibilities at school are that I am the Special Education Liason and I create the Yearbook.
Outside of school, I am busy with my 2 children, a boy and a girl who also attend Adams12 schools. They are active with football, Club Volleyball and piano lessons. I Love going to kickboxing classes. We love traveling and exploring new places.
