Meet the Special Programs Team
I currently serve as the AU1 teacher here at Washington. I have my bachelor’s in Psychology from Elon University and my master’s in Special Education from NC State University. I have specialized in working with children with Autism for almost 10 years now. In the past I worked at Kennedy Krieger Institute, Division TEACCH and provided therapy in the home setting for students on the spectrum. This will be my 6th year as the AU1 teacher at Washington. When I am not working with students, I enjoy walking our two dogs with my new husband, spending time with my siblings and friends, and traveling when possible.
I lived most of my life in upstate New York, but they get way too much snow up there! I graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1995 with BSE in Physical Education. I received my MSE in Physical Education with a concentration in Adapted Physical Education in 1996. I have been happily married for 27 years and have three adult children. My last 21 years have been focused on working with children on the autism spectrum at The Institute for Child Development. I have always loved working with such great students! One of my favorite times is when all my family gets together (especially in Disney World).
I currently serve as a CCR and literacy teacher at Washington GT Magnet Elementary. I graduated from Elon University in 2014 with a degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. This will be my 4th year here at WashinGTon and I love being a Washington Wizard! When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family, dog, and friends. One of my favorite things to do is travel. I try to go to at least one new place each year!

I have both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education. I am certified to teach both regular education and special education. I continue to be excited about working at this amazing elementary school. When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and dog.
