I am a teacher for students who are deaf and hard of hearing at Lincoln Public Schools. I currently serve the community at a center based elementary school working with DHH students Kindergarten through 5th grade, managing intepreting staff, and co-teaching with my peers. I also hold a certificate as a teacher for the visually impaired and I taught student with vision loss for 8 years prior to returning to the field of deaf education. While working with students with vision loss I became intrigued with students with cortical visual impairments and began studying in this field every opportunity I could get. I attend conferences and trainings, read text books, and meet with colleagues to discuss this field. I have been known to have conversations at my church about this topic as it is so interesting to me!
My family includes a husband, two daughters, a grandson, two dogs, and a fish. We are finally in our dream home and enjoy projects in our spare time to make our home a better place to live. I enjoy crafting, crocheting, and camping.
