I am very excited to join HTeX as the Special Day Class teacher! I grew up in rural Wisconsin and moved to Cambridge, MA to complete my Bachelors of Science in Counseling at Lesley University. In college I selected internships working with adults and children with disabilities in the community setting. When I moved to San Diego I began working as an art teacher and instructional assistant in an inclusive school and transitioned to supporting students with crisis-intervention and behavioral/academic interventions. I joined the Education Specialist credentialing program through HTH and have been working as an Ed Specialist at HTH for 5 years. I am passionate about working with students with disabilities and providing an accessible environment for them.
