Prior to fully transitioning into higher education, my work in education spans across
17 years of public school teaching and leadership experience, positive behavioral
coaching, and special education professional development content curation. I love
teaching individuals how to advocate and provide equitable services and practices
to all students, regardless of their diverse needs or disabilities.
I am interested in special education behavioral interventions and instructional practices,
specifically with students with behavioral disorders and minoritized populations.
Additionally, I enjoy exploring multi-cultural educational practices as an intervention
for students in special education.
