Middle School Special Education Grades: 6th-8th

 Overview:  This is my 9th year of teaching special education at River Valley.  I have three sons, one in college (already) and two in highschool.  Being a mom of three boys is great and never ever boring!  When I am not thinking about how to be creative in my classroom and think of different ways so all my students in the resource room can succeed in school, I like to attend my sons' sporting events--football being number one!  I also like to spend time outside, play the piano, read and collect antiques.  The one thing I have always loved about teaching is working with the kids and discovering the best way to help them learn.
