Irvine Unified School District
Education Specialist
South Lake Middle School
After graduating from University High School, I worked as an Instructional Assistant in high school high support needs classrooms for five years while pursuing my Education Specialist credential and masters. For the past nine years I have taught at South Lake Middle School, where I have opened both a non-categorical moderate to severe classroom and an Autism-specific program. This year I have stepped into the role of Special Programs TOSA, supporting Education Specialists and their students across the district. My professional credits include serving as a school-wide PBIS coach, Special Education Department Chair, and district Induction Lead. I have a passion for organizing and creating visual supports for students and staff. Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, reading, and traveling with friends and family.
