I believe we are most effective at facilitating student growth through student interests and areas of strength. Its a pleasure to be a part of a team that recognizes and values the gifts each child has and are able build an individualized education around that. I have had the joy of working with many diverse learners as a Highly Gifted Program teacher, Gifted and Talented Coordinator, classroom teacher, and enrichment program director. I currently work with a consulting firm evaluating twice exceptional students. In my spare time, I love going on adventures with my two sons (both are Bixby students), running, and baking.
