“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela
“Go ahead and pull out your homework from last night” I said to my sisters. I was mimicking what my 5th grade teacher had said to me just a few days earlier.
I didn’t always choose teaching. I scrolled through professions like a strong wind — architect, engineer one minute, nurse, teacher and business women the next. But working with kids with special needs and watching them grow solidified my love for teaching. In 2013 I graduated with my Ph.D. in special education from the University of Missouri.
My research interests focus on interventions for children and youth with autism spectrum disorders. I work as a private Applied Behavior Analysis therapist and family consultant. I teach online special education courses at the University of Missouri.
