I am a Special Education teacher. My teaching license includes k-12 Developmental Cognitive Disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as having my Masters of Science in Special Education. I earned both my Bachelors and Masters from Minnesota State University, Mankato. I have taught in the Truman school district since the fall of 2013. I am also on the Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) team. Prior to teaching, I worked as a paraprofessional in another school district with preschoolers for several years as well as working with 9-12 grade students with disabilities. While in college, I worked with adults with disabilities. This profession has become a passion for me!


I live with my husband Monte,  who is an RN. We have 3 children; Maggie, Annabelle, and Gabe. My oldest daughter lives in Wisconsin, works as an RN and is married to a great guy named Andrew. They have two children. My other two children attend college at my alma mater, living on campus and sometimes back home with us. They both work part time and Gabe is busy with anything that has to do with playing music! My favorite activity when I am not at work is to play with my two grandkids!

Special Education Distance Learning Plan
Available Monday - Friday 8:30-3:00 by email and google meet
Service time scheduled on an individual basis
I am flexible so contact me if this doesn't work for you
  • Direct service time will be provided by Google Meet or Zoom (family specific) once or twice a weeki depending on availability of family schedule and service minutes in the IEP. This will not interfere with the general education teacher's virtual meetings. 
  • The teaher will provide activities and videos to watch for direct instruction and to assist with learning new skills. Those assigned activities will be through Google Classroom and the seesaw app. Those new skills will be worked on with the teacher during the virtual meeting as well. 
  • Other activities that parents believe helpful may also be used or suggestions are welcome!
  • If an IEP meeting is needed, they will take place in a virtual meeting with the team. The materials needed for the meeting will be shared electronically.
  • Once the students has a device, the teacher will make a scheduled meeting through email to the parent or student. Google Classroom, seesaw, and Google meet will be set up at that first meeting. It just takess an email and I can walk you through the rest. Don't stress about it as the programs are user friendly! We just have to get them downloaded and they are easy to use.
