Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice:
I was raised in a family that struggled financially and I struggled with learning. I was pulled out of class for Title 1 support and I wanted to help other students know that with hard work they can achieve any goal they set their minds to. I originally got my degree in Elementary Education with the hope to teach kindergarten or 1st grade. But when I moved to California due to being a military spouse, the school required a 5th year of study. I substitute taught one day in an autism/social communication class and fell in love with that field. I got my certification in Special Education and have never looked back. I am hoping to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst so I can become a better support for my students. I totally believe we are all life long learners and that ALL students can achieve anything with the right support, tools and equality.
Special Education, behavior analysis, curriculum and instruction, cats, cross stitching, coloring, reading, swimming and spending time with my husband and 4 kids.
