Education Assistant, Providence Willamette Falls
Educational Experience: I have been working with children since 1988, when I worked at a preschool. Later, after having children of my own, I began working in Special Education with high needs students ages 5-21. I was fortunate to attend many classes offered by my districts in autism, crisis intervention, communication, sign language, and more. In 2003, I met the NCLB Act qualifications for paraprofessionals. After relocating from the Gorge area back to Portland, I joined the MESD team in February 2015 at Providence Willamette Falls Hospital. Working with struggling students is a passion of mine.
Hobbies: Sewing, playing Scrabble and spending time with my friends and family
Favorite Book: Tom Clancy novels and other mystery stories
