Hi everyone! I am new to the Henderson area as of January 2019. I am a Montana girl but taught in the Portland schools for 30 years. I taught early elementary grades 2-4. I also served as the guidance counselor early in my career. My degrees are in Education and Psychology with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I served as a behavioral specialist along with schoolwide student management and teacher training of behavioral structures, techniques, and programs. I was an acting member of the student intervention team specializing in IEPs, occupational interventions, and behavioral plans for all students in my district. I work well with coworkers, students, family, and outsourced professionals. I advocate for my students and their family. I work diligently to offer my students confidence, enjoyment, personal growth, and success in their individual learning process. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with NEAT and be a part of all students’ success. On a personal note, I have two adult sons who are the light of my life, as well as a fabulous husband. I look forward to meeting all of you and joining the team to support the students and families of the Vegas community.
