Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! This is my second year to teach children with special needs at Wise Elementary. For 20 years prior, I was a resource teacher in another district. I grew up in a small town in west Texas, and have enjoyed living in east Texas for almost 30 years.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Texas Tech University, including certifications in speech and language therapy, special education and ESL. My husband, Bo, and I have two daughters who have both chosen careers in education. Our daughter, Amy, was married on June 10 of this year, and our daughter, Ashley, will be married on June 3 of 2018!
Children who struggle socially and academically because of a learning disability, or health impairment, or autism spectrum disorder, are close to my heart. I hold them to the highest expectation, while providing them with the tools and self-confidence they need to succeed in the classroom, and ultimately, in life.
