Professional Summary

I am an educator seeking a career change in order to be more present for my family. My goal in life continues to be to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Over the course of my teaching career, I established myself as an industrious team member with the ability to adapt to adjusting circumstances and expectations. My experience includes 6 years of teaching at the middle school level, managing a caseload of 25+ students with various educational needs, scheduling all meetings and assessments needed to support students, supervising the support and instruction provided by 1-4 paraprofessionals, and training and supporting colleagues. In my last year at Falcon Middle, I was the Team Lead for the Special Education Generalist team and co-team lead for the Special Education Department.
