I am located in Room C104 and can be reached by email or by phone at 722-2227, ext. 2065.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a major in Special Education from the University of Dayton. I also completed graduate coursework in Educational Administration at the University of Houston in Texas. I completed my Master in Education degree at Georgia State University in the education of the severely handicapped (orthopedically impaired). I have over 30 years of experience as an intervention specialist at the high school level in all areas of disabilities. I have taught in Ohio and the suburban areas of Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, I have work experience in retail sales at Jo-Ann Fabrics, guest relations at Kings Island, and water exercise instruction. In my spare time, I like to travel, cook, read, sew and exercise. Something you might not know about me is that I attended the 1996 Summer Olympics when I lived in Atlanta!
Our program offers individual attention in a small-group setting in order to maximize student success in English/language arts and math. We also support students in other core classes (science and social studies) and electives.
1. Listen to others.
2. Work quietly.
3. Keep your head up.
4. Treat others with respect.
I follow the district's grading scale. I enter weekly grades in ProgressBook. These are determined by averaging daily grades from reading assignments, spelling/vocabulary tests, daily language arts and math skills worksheets, and other individualized activities.
