Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!

Hello! This is my 9th year here at MMS in special education.

I received my B.S. and M.A. in Communication Disorders from the U. of MN, Mpls., and a Teaching Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders through Hamline University. Prior to coming to Mahtomedi, I provided speech-language services at the K-3 and middle school levels in North Branch, MN, and South Washington County. Before that, I worked in adult rehab settings as a speech-language pathologist.

In advisory class, we focus on social-communication skills and learning self-regulation strategies. We will continue the social networking mentorship program. In Work Zone classes, I assist students with their organization and work-completion skills.

My hours are  7:30-3:30 every day. The best way to reach me is by email or voice mail. 

I hope your student(s) have a wonderful year!
