Specialized instruction and support is provided to children on an individual basis.  Proudly, I advocate for students with special needs to participate in general education and activities: athletics, robotics, automotive, mechanics and the arts.  Firmly, I believe that hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard.


I enjoy being outdoors:  exercising, traveling, and relaxing. Above all else, I cherish the time I spend with family and friends.  It is an honor for me to continue my teaching practice at Jonata Middle School.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

                              Do or do not.  There is no try.
