I have taught children in public and private p-12 settings with most of my teaching career focusing on elementary age students with Learning and/or Emotional Disabilities. During 1998-99 I participated in a grant with two Winthrop University professors in my public school classroom and during this time I was an adjunct instructor in the College of Education. After leaving the public school classroom in 2000, I began teaching in the special education department at Winthrop University. In 2002, Winthrop was designated as a Teaching Fellows institution and I became the director of that program.
