Mont Harmon Middle School
Special Education Teacher
Price, UT
I am a special education teacher who has struggled with ADHD, dyslexia and Specific Learning Disabilities my entire academic career. With the help of the Accessibility Services and the TRIO program at UVU, I was able to finish my college degree, which I never thought I was capable of and making the Dean's list several times, even while working full time as a law enforcement officer and raising my family. I then was confident to pursue a master's degree without any supports in place. My mission is to help my students and others realized that special education students can achieve the same goals as any other student, with the supports specific to their disabilities in place and being able to trust their their own abilities. I will be speaking on being a person with ADHD, explaining the challenges, the lack of executive functioning and how it impacts every aspect of your life.
