My 4th-grade teachers thought they were punishing me by sending me to the class of children with wheelchairs and feeding tubes, but those experiences made me find my calling! Soon I was giving up my recesses to volunteer in that classroom and the rest is history. I come from a family where we are all either a teacher or married to a teacher. It’s in my blood. And finding SENIA is simply an extension of my family. I now serve on the board for SENIA-Europe and couldn’t be happier to be a part of this organization.
I am so excited to be attending my first SENIA conference and grateful for the honor to speak as well! My 20 years of teaching have taken me around the US and the world, and I have now called Switzerland home for the last 7.5 years. For the last two years, I have been out of the classroom and helping globally mobile families find appropriate international schools for their children with needs that fall outside of the general education bubble. I have become passionate about creating systems to help international schools better run their learning support programs so they are able to better serve more students. I’m in the process of creating a cloud-based program that will allow schools to track the instructional goals and progress over time of their students in LS or RTI. I can’t wait to share it with you very soon!
I’m looking forward to meeting as many new people as possible during the SENIA conference. Please come and find me!
