Teacher, fifth and sixth grades
Education and experience
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 2012. I received my master’s degree in special education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2016. I hold a certificate in applied behavior analysis (ABA). I’m also a registered behavior technician and a transition and autism specialist. I began working with the special needs population in college, where I provided respite care for a young boy with autism. That’s where my interest and passion bloomed. I went on to become a summer camp counselor with Easter Seals, a nonprofit that provides services for children and adults with disabilities, for two years. After that adventure, I moved to Texas and began working at a specialized therapeutic school in DFW for four years and in the ABA therapy field. I arrived at The St. Anthony School in the fall of 2017.
What is your favorite thing about teaching at The St. Anthony School?
I truly value the team approach. The collaboration of the teachers, counselors, administrators and parents really helps support our students and staff.
What is your most memorable moment since you've been at St. Anthony?
My most memorable moment would have to be the spring 2018 bike rally. It was a great opportunity for students and parents to socialize in a fun environment and see our students ride together. Riding a bike can be challenging for some of our students, but many of them got out there and had a blast!
What is the one thing you want every parent to know about this school?
We are here for your child and have their best interests at heart.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and dog. I look forward to football season and cheering on the Green Bay Packers, and I like traveling to Arkansas and taking a break away from the city.
