ABOUT THE TEACHER: I graduated from Youngstown State University in 2002 with a Bachelor's of Science degree and began teaching in Youngstown. In 2007, I completed a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in special education and reading education from YSU. I started at Struthers High School for the 2007-2008 school year. In 2009, I completed another Masters degree. I received a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Edinboro University. My current certifications include: special education grades K-12, Reading grades K-12 and my principal license grades K-12.
ABOUT THE CLASS: I teach Science and Language Arts in the resource room classroom and I teach Social Studies and Math inclusion classes in the general education classroom. I have high standards for my students and expect them to work hard to meet their goals. However, I do work on remedial work for the students in areas they are struggling with academically. We have a lot of fun in class, but we also challenge ourselves. My goal for all of my students is to have a nurturing, fun and meaningful classroom experience to prepare them for whatever their post high school career may be.
