Director of Special Education

  I am delighted to serve as the Director of Special Education for the Swallow School District. I began my education career in 1999 as a special education teacher in the elementary and middle school setting for four years. I received my Masters in School Counseling at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and began that part of my career in 2003 at Waukesha North High School. I then received my certification in administration at Marian University (principal, director of pupil services, and director of curriculum and Instruction) and served as an assistant principal in the School District of Greenfield. I recently completed the superintendent program at Concordia University.

In addition to my educational career, I am a certified Crisis Prevention Intervention trainer and Love and Logic facilitator. I train teaching staff non-violent crisis interventions and physical restraint protocols. I co-facilitate Parenting with Love and Logic classes on an annual basis at the Arrowhead feeder schools and/or community organizations.

I am also a proud parent of two children. I have a daughter Lucy and son Nikhil who attend Swallow School. My interests include golfing, exercising, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
