About me:
I am proud to be a panther!  I graduated from Ludlow High School in 2001, and was lucky enough to have been hired to come back as a special needs teacher in 2008. After high school, I attended the University of Kentucky and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics in 2006. I worked as an auditor for Macy’s for the next two years, until I enrolled in the education program at Northern Kentucky University. In 2011, I completed my Master’s and Rank 1 degrees at NKU in the areas of Special Education and Teacher as a Leader. Although it took a little bit of time for me to get into education, I can honestly say that it is the best decision I have made. 
Currently, I teach students with special needs in 7th grade. I also work at SOAR three days each week.
If a student needs extra help, I am available before school on most days.  Students may join SOAR to receive additional homework and tutoring help.  (Please follow this link for more information:  We also offer Focus Friday from 7:30am-8:10am each Friday.

Contact Information:
If you need to contact me for any reason at all, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I will return your message either after school that day, or the following morning.
This year I will be utilizing Remind as a way of sending out important messages to you.  You can sign up using their app or through text.  This is a free service; however, if you choose to receive the message via text, standard messaging rates will apply.  I plan on using it to notify you and/or your child of upcoming tests, projects, or deadlines.  You will not be able to see my number and I will not be able to see yours.  Depending on how you enroll, you will receive my messages via email, text, or through the app.  Please see my Remind page for sign-up directions.
