What peaked your interest in becoming a special education’s teacher?
“I volunteered in a program in high school where we worked with the special ed students at our high school. That was my first great experience working in the special ed world.”

What’s your favorite book and why?
“I can’t think of a favorite book, but the one I’m reading right now is pretty good. It’s called ‘Glass House’ and it’s a murder mystery. It’s pretty dark, but exciting.”
