Meet Our Staff

For the 2021-2022 school year, I am the counselor for all 7th grade students and for 8th grade students with last names beginning with letters N-Z. My background includes seven years as a teacher serving the exceptional children population; an experience I credit for informing my view of disability- it is simply a different ability. I enjoy spending time with family, watching movies, and doing makeup. I am proud to be a Swann Lion and look forward to working with you. I have a student-first philosophy and believe all students can achieve academically. My foundational approach to working with students is creating a safe and nonjudgmental space that encourages holistic growth.
