I'm the Founder of Coaching Around You


This is my Story

I love coaching teachers to make the IEP process easier by building strong partnerships with all members of the IEP team.

I provide support and coaching to build effective classroom systems and IEPs, Individual Education Plans,  with sustained partnerships to prepare students for future employment, further education, and independent living.

I have over 20 years of experience as a certified Exceptional Needs Specialist in Indiana and Illinois. I have provided virtual webinars for para-professionals and teachers to grow their practice from building independence, data collection, and effective communication & collaboration skills.

I have presented professional development sessions nationwide that inspire teachers to think outside the box, and create engaging lessons that are personalized, build on students’ confidence, and include parents’ and students’ voices.

I have consulted with leading curriculum companies to make sure the needs of all learners are being met. Currently, I am a full-time learning behavior specialist and consultant working with school districts to support students with autism, their teachers/staff, and families.  

This gives me many opportunities to work directly with students and also find innovative ways to serve them in the context of the classroom.  My blog posts, and products are created out of the experience of what works in the classroom and a need of a teacher or a student.   I design and provide professional development for school districts and have presented at virtual conferences on supporting families and students through the IEP process.
