I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Special Education from UNO in 2016 and have just recently finished my Master of Science in Special Education from UNO. I am starting a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis.  In our classroom with use ABA principals along with the Ziggurat Model to develop a classroom environment to help our students succeed. Our staff is Mandt De-Escalation Certified to help students calm down and regulate emotions. The motto in our classroom is our students don’t interrupt our teaching. They are the reason for the teaching.
