This is my 26th year in education, during which I have taught from third to ninth grades. Both my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction were completed at KU. I completed my Building Administrator's licensure through Emporia State University. My core belief is that students will achieve when we, as educators', show them we believe they can succeede. In helping students to develop into productive citizens we must not only teach and support them academically, they need to learn how to build healthy relationships and navigate challenges of our society. As a Student Interventionist my role is to be an effective resource for staff in providing students with effective instruction that addresses their individual needs.
