Dean of Special Education
I am excited to be entering my 15th year in education. This is my fourth year at Freedom High School and second year serving as the Dean of Special Education. As an educator, I started my career in the autism program at a middle school in Winchester. In 2009, I came to LCPS as an ID teacher at Stone Hill Middle School, and was promoted to SALT in 2011. In 2015, I began my tenure at Freedom as the special education department chair.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree, in special education, from Bloomsburg University, in Pennsylvania, and a Master’s degree, in Education Leadership, with a concentration in special education, from George Mason University.
I enjoy working with the students and staff at Freedom and I’m excite for another year. As the Dean of Special Education, my goal is to continue improving our inclusive practices and ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed in high school.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my almost 5-year-old son, Collin. He makes every day an adventure. I also enjoy traveling to new places, attending football and baseball games to root on my favorite teams, and watching new movies.
I am looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year.
