Degrees and Certifications:
I joined the FAMS staff in 2018 and I am a Special Education teacher ranging from ID to Cross Categorical. This year I will be teaching in a small group ELA setting, Guided Practice, Independent Living Skills, Social Studies, Science, and helping coordinate a student-run coffee business. I integrate relationship building, sensory regulation strategies, Zones of Regulation, and Social Thinking social skills work into all my classes. I believe that students need to be at a place to learn before I try to help them access the curriculum. Before FAMS I taught at Oregon High School and Aldrich Intermediate School. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 5th year teaching.
I live in McFarland with my husband. We enjoy spending our time with our families (mine from Iowa and his from outside Barneveld and Stoughton) and friends, spending time walking outside, playing board games, and dreaming of the day when we adopt our first rescue dog!
I look forward to a year full of learning for both the students and myself. I am a firm believer that students do best when families and staff can work together for consistency, compassion, and knowledge. I know that you are an expert in and love your child, and I am excited to work as a team with you!
