Biographical Info:

I have worked in the field of special education for 30 years. I received my undergraduate degree from Silver Lake College in Manitowoc, WI and my master’s degree from University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. The majority of my experience has been in alternative education programs serving children with significant developmental delays both as a teacher and an administrator. I currently teach full time at Aquinas High School in La Crosse fulfilling a contract between Aquinas Catholic Schools and Catholic Charities. In addition to teaching direct instruction to 3 high school students with special needs, I consult with other high school teachers allowing a number of students with learning needs the opportunity to participate fully in the high school experience.

I believe in the mission of Catholic Charities and feel blessed to bring my two passions together professionally, my faith and my love for special education.
