I graduated with honors from Arizona State University with a degree and dual certification in Early Childhood and Special Education. This is my second year teaching at Autism Academy in Gilbert. I have worked with students with Autism for five years in school settings and in home settings. I focus on functional skills as well as alternative forms of communication to help my students be successful both in the classroom, and in their every day lives. I am very passionate about helping students become more independent as well as focus on academic, social, and behavioral growth. I’m excited to incorporate music, movement, and hands-on activities in all subject areas of the classroom!
