About Me


I love sharing my knowledge with others and making sure all children no matter their economic status is prepared for employment, further education and independent living.

What puts a smile on my face every day is when students make the connection between school and life and begin self-advocating for themselves so they can reach their goals.

It is no more I do not know; it is I learn best by. . .  I need this to be successful, because . . ..

I am a certified special education teacher and educational specialist with over 13 years’ experience working in the Chicagoland area. I have consulted with teachers and families throughout Chicago and NWI to build student’s voice’s and self-advocacy skills.

Let’s make this school year great, by advocating for what is in the best interest of your children and students.
