I am excited to be an Exceptional Children teacher at Horizons Elementary School.  I have spent several years working with the Day Treatment here in Caldwell and surrounding counties.  Previously, I spent many years working with children and youth providing mental health services and behavioral support.  I look forward to another fun and productive school year!
