How My Students Inspire Me:
  • Our students are the best part of Woodlynde. They are full of energy and excitement that keeps me smiling, and I love hearing about big and small events in their lives.

  • Our students have taught me that there is always room to have a little fun! They are so curious about so many things, and it truly inspires me to keep learning new things and finding new ways of guiding them through each session with me.
Some Things About Me:
  • I always knew I wanted to work with students, and I liked the idea of helping kids find their voices to help them be successful in all facets of their lives. We use communication all the time!

  • I love to hang out with my husband, son, and pets.

  • My hobbies include running, baking, and reading.
Some of My Favorite Things about Woodlynde:
  • Every faculty member is motivated toward the same goal of helping our students find a personal love of learning, and the teachers are always willing to help each other or provide support when needed.

  • While I have a full day of speech and language sessions with our students, often starting before the school day officially begins and ending well after, they are all 1:1 sessions or small groups, so I really get to know each student well.
