Hello! I am the new Early Childhood Special Education teacher in Lyle and Glenville-Emmons Community Schools.

I have a MS degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Minnesota State University and have completed courses in Speech and Language Pathology as well. I am looking forward to assisting children to learn new things and to experience their excitement as they become confident in their learning. I live near Forest City, Iowa and have a husband and 2 children, one of whom is out of the nest. I am an avid swimmer, bicycler, hiker, cross country skier and kayaker. My areas of educational interest include:

The Brain
AAC - Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Multicultural Diversity
Speech and Language
Literacy
Music

I am looking forward to a terrific year!
