I am a life long learner!I became a teacher 15 years ago because I have a strong belief that all children can learn at high achievement levels, and I care deeply about educating students to be the best they can be! It's important to me that students enjoy coming to school and they feel valued and challenged.As the SEI Coach, my job is to support both students and mainstream classroom teachers to help increase their English Language proficiency while learning the academic content.

I also manage all of the paperwork at each of my schools for the ELL students.Outside of school, being a mom is my primary job. I spend my time chasing a 5 year old boy and a 3 year old daughter around! They light up my life! I am also the mom to a English bulldog, Brutus, and a cocker spaniel, Kaylee. I enjoy working out, running, traveling, scrapbooking, skiing, exercising, and spending time outdoors with my family.
