Degrees and Certifications:
I joined the OCE team in 2013 after moving to North Carolina from Rochester, New York. I am married, have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I have been teaching special education for the past 17 years. I really enjoy working with elementary students because they are like sponges, they love to soak up as much knowledge as they can. My passion besides teaching is dog rescue. I currently work with Peak Lab Rescue as the adoptions coordinator. I have a chocolate lab rescue named Faith who I absolutely adore.
