I have been teaching in the MDS program for 12 years. I have a Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Millersville University, and a Masters Degree in Education from Cabrini College. I have been working with students of transitional age so my focus has been on functional tasks with the idea of helping my students become as independent as possible in all areas of daily living. I am now taking on a new role of Itinerant Teacher/LEA representative. In this new role I look forward to mentoring new teachers, supporting veteran teachers, and working with our job coaches to expand our MDS work/volunteer program.
