    Teacher Message: I love working with the students at Wilkinson! Our school has a unique and special closeness among staff and students that I believe is hard to find. 

    I have been the Special Education Resource teacher at Wilkinson Early Childhood Center for three years and now going into my fourth year. I love being a Wilkie Bear and love all the little Wilkie Bear students. We are a close knit school community. I consider all students at Wilkinson my students. I work with an awesome group of K-2 special needs students daily. I like to have open and often communication with the parents of my students. 

    My educational background and experience:

    I have a bachelor's degree in Elenentary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Missouri State University, a Master's degree in Special Education K-21 from Fontbonne University and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Computer Education from Phoenix University. I have been teaching special education since 2001 and still enjoy my job. 

    I also teach ESOL online. I teach English to children in China on a daily basis. I am in my second year and I love it. 

    My personal background:

    I am married and we have a 6 1/2 year old son, Kole. I live in Imperial, Missouri and no it's not that far :-) (hahaha). I love to go to the movies, sporting events, attend Kole's sporting events, being a mother and a teacher, playing sports and going to the beach when I can.
