I am an energetic teacher with a background in educating children with behavioral challenges.  I have strong leadership qualities that include excellent organizational and communication skills. I lead a hands on learning experience that is abundant in opportunites for all types of learners.  My lessons are embedded in technology and focus on active learning.  I believe in providing my students with both a compassionate listener and a positive role model.
