How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
After graduating from college I spent four years as a dormitory director at several schools in central Virginia that served students who learn differently. My favorite position involved running an Independent Living House, in which I helped students in their late teenage years learn key life skills such as money management, home maintenance, cooking and how to find employment. This experience prepared me for working with college students who are navigating the challenges of college life.
Traveling, playing drums, reading European mystery novels, cooking
