Special Education

Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. I was born in St. Joseph, MI and raised in Berrien Springs, MI. I graduated from Andrews University in 1995 with a bachelors degree in elementary education. I also completed a masters degree at MSU and completed a special education learning disability endorsement from Walden University. 

I am blessed to have wonderful and special individuals in my life: Brian, Nate, Joshua, Brendan, Seth and Caleb.  Yes, I am completely outnumbered as a female. J  I have moved all around Michigan but came back to where I grew up since I have quite a bit of extended family in this area.  I enjoy traveling, relaxing at the beach, hanging out with family and friends, reading, and enjoy teaching various levels. These are just a few of my favorite activities. 

My desire is that each of my students realize they are special individuals.  I want them to know and understand that we all learn differently and to accept themselves as unique individuals. My hope is to create a learning environment where all students feel accepted and cared for irregardless of their background and unique differences.  It is a pleasure to be able to teach such amazing students. I am here to help each student.  Therefore, do not ever hesitate to reach out and contact me.
