I began my teaching career at Leyden High Schools in 2003. I have a deep history with Leyden, as both my parents and myself are graduates of East Leyden. I have taught in several of our Special Education Programs: Multi-Needs, LIFE, Transition, Cross-Categorical Classes. Currently, I teach self-contained English II and Social Communications. Teaching students to be independent, self-advocates has always been a passion and goal throughout my teaching career. In addition to my teaching duties, I am the Special Education's Resource teacher and Test Accommodations Coordinator.
