Special Education-Day Transition Teacher

HELLO Biloxi Junior High!  It so great to be with you again this year!  2020 has been a rollercoaster for us all, but I think we are handling it like the Indians we are!  This will be my 16th year as a special education teacher and for someone who never wanted to teach, this has been the most rewarding career of my life!!!  My previous experience outside the classroom includes the following positions: Day Treatment Specialist for a counseling agency and Mental Health Specialist at a Behavioral Treatment Center.

I am currently serving as the 8th Grade Special Education Chair.  In December of 2019, I completed my Educatoinal Specialist degree in Educational Administration from Arkansas State University!!  I have degrees in Sociology and Criminology, Special Education, and Technology Education.  As you can see learning is ESSENTIAL!!

In my spare time, I love being at home in peace.  Having peace is essential to me!!  I love photography and cooking, especially baking and sharing with those around me.  I also enjoy meeting people (I don't meet strangers :)), traveling, crime books and movies, encouraging others, but most importantly, working with students with disabilities and being with those I love, as well as those who love me!!

I look forward to serving you and your family this year in any capacity available.  Even though the world seems a little distorted right now, we will make it beccause we have been and we are doing an AWESOME job!!  Let's make the 20-21 school year count !  Let's GO INDIANS!!!
