Key Roles


I feel very fortunate that my teaching career has led me to Horizon.  I started out as a Secondary Art teacher having a Fine Arts degree as well as an Education degree.  I taught Art, amoung other things (special education included), for the first 4 years of my career.  I've also done my share of substitute teaching.  Then one day I took a shot and found myself teaching at Horizon!

I actually started out as the STAR teacher but now have the pleasure of teaching the Developing Class.  Our program focuses on increasing independence in Functional Life Skills, Self Regulation, Communication, Social/Leisure, Functional Academics, and Health & Wellness skills in order for students to be successful in their lives.

I have a special interest in AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) and plan to pursue as much learning as I can in this area.  I want to help kids find their voice and realize their full potential.
