Greetings Long Middle Students & Families!!! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!! The last year and a half was a challenge for all of us, but we pushed through. We spent eight months working virtually from home and slowly phased back into in-person learning again from January 2021-June 2021.  This Pandemic has not subsided as of yet, but we must do our best to move on with life and normalcy as we know it.  We will do that by working collaboratively towards our common goals.  The administrative team, faculty, & staff are here to support your children through this process. I'm looking forward to this new 2021-2022 school year with great optimism!  I will be a Co-Teacher, teach a Science & Math class, and I will have an 8th grade Advisory class this year.  Other roles that I have in the building this year include: SPED Team Lead, member of the building Leadership Team, and Hospitality Committee Chair.  You will find out a little more about me below regarding my past work experiences and education.

I am a graduate of Central Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science in Special Education.  I also have a Master of Arts in Teaching in Special Education and a Master of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Webster University.

I have served in my current role as a Special Educator in SLPS at Long since January 2019 and as SPED Team Lead since August 2019. Previously, I was a Special Education teacher and Area Coordinator (Administrator) in the Ferguson Florissant School District from 2015-2018. I started my career as a high school Special Education Resource teacher in the Jennings School District from 2001-2005.  This role was continued as a high school Special Education Resource and Self-Contained teacher in the Wellston School District from 2006-2010.  My journey then led me to the Normandy School District where I was a middle school resource teacher from 2010-2015.  

I am dedicated, hardworking, and passionate about education.  Additionally, I am collaborative and supportive of teachers, students, and parents.  I pride myself on being detailed oriented and having strengths in communicating effectively with parents and stake holders regarding student needs and supports. 

Please be sure to continue practicing social distancing, wear masks, and wash your hands often. Be SAFE, STAY SAFE!!!
