Welcome to my page!  

I have been a part of the Ridgefield School District since 1999 as a teacher assistant.  After completing my BA in 2004, I was hired by the district as a teacher of students with disabilities.  I have worked with children with autism and learning disabilities ranging from the ages of 3 to 12.  I am fully trained in ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Therapy and I apply it as needed in my classroom.  

This is my eighth year teaching Kindergarten Inclusion at Shaler Academy.  I believe that children learn through many different learning styles and it is important to me that I teach using many different methods to reach each and everyone of them.  I provide an environment that provides encouragement and support to all my students.  My goal is to make every student feel confident and successful.
