I am new to Brooks this year and I love my job as a 6th grade special education teacher and math co-teacher for three math block classes. I am licensed to teach special education (K-12) with a learning behavior specialist endorsement (LBS1). I have seven years of experience teaching in a variety of settings and I have found the most important teaching strategy is building positive connections with my students and their families.
I love spending time with my family, friends, and my two dogs. I have learned that raising a family is hard work, but the benefits pay off if you persevere. It is the same for teaching; while it is not always easy, the reward of watching my students grow makes it all worthwhile!
Thank you for reading my bio. Please contact me anytime. I look forward to our continued relationship at Brooks Middle School!
