Early Childhood and Elementary Special Education Teacher


I am a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. I live in Selma, AL and have a daughter who's a student at UA. I enjoy singing in the church choir and reading fiction novels, in my leisure time. I volunteer with the 21st Century Kids Program, with hopes of preparing the youth of tomorrow for a better future. I assist students in gaining access to the general education curriculum through the use of evidence-based practices and strategic intervention. I provide instructional support to classroom teachers by using technologies that are designed to differentiate the lesson with standards-based instruction and state-mandated assessments, using the common-core curriculum and college and career ready standards. Integrating instructional technologies enables educators to better meet the needs of all learners in an inclusive setting. 

"Teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."

   Proverbs 22:6
