Dean of Specialized Supports
Gary Comer Middle School

Dean of Specialized Supports, Year 7 at GCMS and Year 8 in education. I grew up in Northwest Indiana then attended Indiana University in Bloomington to earn my Bachelor's degree in Special Education. I am currently attending Ball State University and working towards my Masters of Special Education and Director of Exceptional Needs licensure. Outside of school, I love staying active - taking my dog for walks, runs, and swims, as well as reading and working on my home. I came to education because I love the opportunity to think outside the box and promote creative thinking in student minds. My hopes for this year are to develop a virtual special education department that fully supports our students needs - academically, socially, and emotionally - while developing them as individuals.
