College and Career Planning 111Hi Everyone! I teach 9th and 10th grade students in our Compass Program. I'm also the newest member of the Positive Behavior Support team here on campus.I'm new to Valley High School, and have 15 years of experience teaching in the field of Special Education. I completed my credential program at CSU Long Beach, and hold a Master's degree in Special Education from Northern Illinois University. While originally from Chicago, I have lived in southern California for 7 years now, and am very happy to be here.Outside of school, I work as an Orientation and Mobility Specialist, training people who are blind or visually impaired, to use the white cane and meet their travel goals. I have also been active in Toastmasters International for the last 7 years, and use this to continue working on my communication and leadership skills, as well as mentoring others along their journeys. I often do volunteer work during the summers, most recently traveling to Greece to work with the refugee population in Ritsona.I'm looking forward to lots of great memories and awesome times here at Valley. Go Falcons!
