Hello! I am an experienced Special Education Teacher and School Counselor. I am currently employed by a district in the Pittsburgh area. I received my undergraduate degree in Special Education from the Pennsylvania State University and my Master's Degree in Professional School Counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I worked as a special education teacher for 8 years before moving in to the position of school counselor. I am certified in English Language Arts and Mathematics and along with teaching both subjects to elementary and middle school students, I also tutor students in those areas after school. I not only provide students with the necessary skills, but also the encouragement they need to be successful. My main goal is building rapport with students which I feel is essential to providing them with a safe and supportive place to learn. I look forward to the potential of working with you and your family!
