Lead Teacher


B.S. in Counseling



Teacher of children with special needs in a private school setting.
I have worked with children on the Autism spectrum for four years.


Teaching Philosophy:

I believe every child learns differently and as a teacher I meet them where they are to nurture a positive environment for education. Children need to know that they have the potential to grow, learn, and become successful students.

Teachers are to celebrate student's successes so that when a new concept or challenge is introduced they are ready to accept it.

Working at Hope Youth Ranch allows me to teach students that God has given me the heart for. I know that Hope Youth Ranch is dedicated to building up these children for the future and I am humbled that I get to be a part of this.
