With 9+ years of experience, I've been blessed with the opportunity to teach and serve as a third and fifth grade teacher as well as a gifted education teacher. As a gifted education teacher, I was able to provide accelerated instruction which offered depth and complexity within tasks and projects outside of the students' general education classes. While I loved my previous position, my heart began pulling me in a different direction. I had been introduced to McFadden and it's community early in my teaching career, and I felt immediately drawn to it. I was teaching at a fantastic school that I couldn't have ever imagined leaving. If I was called somewhere else, I knew I wanted it to be at McFadden. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to extend my education and teaching experience in the gifted education field, a path that finally led me to McFadden. I'm thrilled to be a part of the McFadden family and look forward to the adventures of this journey.
