This is my 20th year of teaching special education at Platte County R-III. I taught Behavior/Emotional Disabilities for 11 of those years. I have been working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders for the past 9 years. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education with certification in Special Education from Missouri Western State University. I completed a Masters in Education degree from Baker University and a Masters in Evaluation and Programming for Autism Spectrum Disorders from Missouri Western State University.
