"Being a student at Mt. Healthy when our team went to the State basketball tournament, I learned that working together and becoming part of a team can make any endeavor more meaningful. I enjoy helping our students discover their strengths.   After teaching social studies since 1993, and starting the AP History class at Mt. Healthy in 1999, my daughter was born at just 23 weeks gestation age in 2005. She was on Oxygen over a year. I decided to focus on teaching special education to answer a calling. These experiences enable me  to empathize with parents of students who learn differently and understand the unique challenges."
