I am an early childhood special education teacher in the Bright Beginnings program. I currently serve students in a blended classroom but have many years of experience in the self-contained setting as well. It is a blast working with my curious, little learners who not only put a smile on my face daily, but also afford me the great privilege of supporting them as they blossom before my eyes. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with the amazing and supportive team at Laurel Lane ES. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and children. I have a son in high school, a son in middle school, and a daughter in elementary school. When you add my preschool class to the mix, one might say I truly get a good daily sampling of all age groups!

It is so engaging and relevant to today’s learners! I am an active member of our SHIP running club and manage the social media platforms for our school. When I am not teaching at Clara Byrd Baker, I love to teach on the online platform VIPKID, attend Orangetheory classes, spend time with my family and my dog Lucy, and compete in local races. I am so honored to have been selected as Teacher of the Year for Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School.
