Hello! Welcome to my educational leadership portfolio. The past year has been packed with a variety of leadership experiences along with learning my new job as Educational Specialist for Mecklenburg County Public Schools. I spent the previous ten years as a Special Education teacher at Park View High School and wore quite a few hats, including department chair and 504 Coordinator for my school. In addition to work, I am mother to a happy, talkative four year old and wife to a traveling husband. Whenever I get some “free time,” I am more than likely in the kitchen, modifying recipes to suit my culinary tastes. My life is fun and sometimes hectic – and certainly never boring!
