Welcome To Resource!
I am so excited to join Norton this year as the Resource 1 teacher. I taught in a special education classroom for children with Autism in Frisco ISD for 3 years. I received both my Bachelors and Master's Degree at UNT in special education. My background is in behavior analysis and before teaching, I provided therapy as well as trained therapists and parents in private clinics for over 10 years. Once we started a family, I stayed home for 11 years to be with my children.
My husband Stu and I have 3 girls, and we have lived in Allen for 17 years. My daughter Katie is a Senior this year at Allen High School, Sophie is a Freshman at the Lowery Center, and Ruby is a 3rd grader here at Norton. All of my girls started here at Norton since kinder, so this school is like our second home; therefore, I am beyond excited to be here teaching!!
In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my family to Colorado or anywhere nice and cool to escape the heat here in the summer. I enjoy hikes (when the weather is nice), spending time with our dog we rescued during quarantine, and when time allows I love putting together puzzles.
I look forward to teaching and supporting your child in a positive environment to help them achieve their maximum potential.
