• logo Welcome to the LifeSkills Classroom at Madison Elementary! 
    I am looking forward to having your student in my class and the learning and development that will take place this year in LifeSkills!

    I am originally from Wisconsin, where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education and Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. After moving to Seattle, I earned my Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from City University. Then I went on to earn my Administrative Credential from the Danforth Program at the University of Washington. It is wonderful to be back in the classroom and working with special education students and their families once again.
                             It is going to be an exciting year!
