I serve on the International, European, and Swiss boards of SENIA and work to bring the message of inclusive education to international schools.
A US citizen, but a resident of Switzerland since 2013, I have been a teacher for over 20 years in three different countries, teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as well as extensively with students K-12 who have additional learning needs such as Autism, learning disabilities, and intellectual disabilities.
Throughout my tenure, I have noted a pervasive struggle, for families and school staff, to clearly and concisely communicate students’ needs. Specifically, when students transfer from one school to another or progress from grade to grade.
The good news is that these problems can be overcome with the right level of preparation and support!
I bring all of this knowledge and experience to the relationship I create with families and schools to address individual needs and concerns.
