Bio

This is my 35th year teaching Special Education, and I still love the students and my job. I started doing volunteer work with children with disabilities at 9 years old - my dad was in the Army - stationed at Fort Monroe, VA - asked to help "pattern" an 8 year old girl with cerebral palsy - and my love for folks with disabilities took off. I continued to do volunteer work with people with disabilities, so it just made sense to go into special education - have never regretted it. I am married and have one 21 year old daughter that graduated from Central HS. My husband and I moved from Gwinnett County to live in Carroll County. When I'm not doing school stuff, I love playing tennis, "running", and traveling.
