I am an education specialist and author who helps empower those who work with students. I am available to help teachers and parents with my consulting services, workshops, books and other resources, including my teacher store. I hold a master’s degree in education and have provided special education services to students, particularly those on the spectrum, for more than a decade. I love helping students cultivate optimism, perseverance, and a sense of self-worth!
