"All of my teacher preparation, undergraduate through the doctoral –level, has focused on teaching students with disabilities. My teaching experiences have been aligned with this passion, having taught a full range of students with disabilities at the preschool, elementary, middle, high, and college levels (undergraduates and graduates) in five different states. I served as president-elect, president, and past-president of North Carolina CEC, and presented at CEC's international conferences for the past three years. Additional presentations have occurred at CEC's Teacher Education Division and NC CEC conferences. In Taipei, Taiwan, I led a series of workshops that addressed how to teach students with disabilities in general education classrooms at two high schools.
