She is currently teaching a split class of 5th and 6th graders, she is ESL endorsed, is a trauma-informed teacher and a licensed administrator with a 2nd masters degree in Teacher Leadership. Former students from years past still talk to her and thank her for her love and life-changing guidance during their time in her classroom! She has made a real difference in the lives of several hundred students!”
