This is my 12th year teaching in Special Education. I have worked at both large district high schools, middle schools, and a couple of charter schools. I was born in Namibia, and lived in South Africa till part way through high school, when my family immigrated to Upstate New York. I graduated from SUNY Buffalo and worked in Child and Adolescent Research Studies for several years at the University of Rochester, and then UTMB in Galveston Tx before I became a teacher. I have 5 beautiful children, 3 in college, a high schooler, and an 8th grader. My husband is a pilot which has been the major source of several moves for our family. I am happy to join the Mustang family and look forward to a great year.
