Hey Y’all – Welcome back! I am the 8th grade interventionist, meaning I’ll be an inclusionary teacher for both Language Arts and Math and a resource instructor for reading and math skills. This year starts my 9th year of having the privilege to teach at Westlake Middle School. I have been in the middle school setting in the area of special education for over 20 years. During that time, I have taught students with a gamut of disabilities ranging from slight to severe learning disabilities, behavior and emotional disorders, autism, and other health impairments. I hold a Master of Science in Special Education from the University of Oregon (Go DUCKS!) and a Bachelor’s of Science in Special Education from the University of Georgia. Let’s have a terrific year!!!
