I graduated from University of Missouri - St. Louis then recieved my alternative certification for special education. I started my teaching career at Avondale House teaching high school students with autism. From there, I began working at Dulles Middle School as a special education teacher. I am excited to begin a new chapter at First Colony Middle School teaching the CLaSS PLUS class. Before teaching, I worked in group homes and day habilitation facilities for adults and children of all abilities in St. Louis, MO, and Houston, TX.
