About Me:
I am a special education teacher at Morris K. Udall in the Isaac School District. I work with students with a variety of disabilities and this project would greatly help my students participate in the general education curriculum while learning about conservation, recycling, and sustainability.

I love children and believe we should all take an active role to becoming more proactive and working together for our future and that of all children.
