Special Education




I am excited to learn with you this school year! I have been teaching for eight years in the state of Arizona. after completing my teacher preparation program in Illinois. I grew up in the Chicagoland area and attended public schools through college. I enjoy playing instruments (percussion, ukulele), being outside (kayaking, hiking, fishing, camping, conservation work), and spending time with my family. I grew up in a blue-collar family and I have worked as a telemarketer, camp counselor, camp director, high ropes facilitator, teambuilding facilitator, and self-contained special education teacher. You may notice that many of my jobs involve the development of youth- my passion.

I genuinely enjoy helping your learner to become the person they aspire to be and to reach the goals they have set for themselves. I stay focused on skills your student will need to be independent and engaged in a training program, career, or college after they graduate from Premier. Communication is key in helping your student make the most of their education, and I hope you will add my class code on the remind app (@hammer2022) to communicate with me.
