This will be my fourth year teaching with The Down Syndrome Community. Working with the children and families is always a highlight of my month. I graduated from the Applied Behavior Analysis program in 2019 with my Masters of Education, and received my BCBA certification shortly after. Outside of The DSC, I work for the Experimental Education Unit (EEU) as a head teacher in Project DATA. I am passionate about inclusive education and teaching through play! In my free time, I enjoy swimming, reading, spending time with family and friends and my cat, Lilly.
