I'm excited to be joining the STAG community this year! I'm a committed lifelong learner and educator with a passion for meeting the needs of ALL students and supporting each individual. My professional background includes over 20 years teaching/supporting: grades K-8th, early childhood, working as an intervention specialist, and serving as the coordinator of a schoolwide learning support program. I hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, as well as additional certifications in Reading Preparation and Dyslexia Studies from the University of Dayton – where I also train pre- and in-service teachers as an adjunct professor with the Department for Teacher Education. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband Joshua, our four children, and various pets.
