I work with students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) in both a self-contained setting and in inclusion settings. I am excited to start my second year here at Betsy Ross. Prior to coming to work in Forest Park, I spent three years as a special education teacher in Cicero District 99 and also one year teaching at Giant Steps therapeutic day school. I have a Masters Degree in Education from Roosevelt University and a Professional Educator License with an LBS1 (Learning Behavior Specialist) endorsement.
