Welcome to resource! I am excited to work with your child this year. This is my first year at Hays Elementary School and my 2nd year in RISD. Last year, I was the English/Language Arts resource teacher at Cain Middle School. My first 9 years of education experience was in Illinois where I I taught K-4th grade Life Skills. I got my bachelors of Science in Special Education from Western Illinois University and then I went on to get my masters in Special Education at Illinois State University where I specialized in behavior management. I have been married to my husband, Heath, for 9 years and we have two  children, Chloe (8) and Colton (6).
