Hi! My name is Justine and I recently moved to Austin from Hawaii with my wonderful husband and two fur babies, Buddy and Bella. I have also been lucky enough to call Maryland and California home. During my free time I enjoy snorkeling, reading, hiking, and catching up on television shows I missed throughout the week.
I attended the University of California, Santa Cruz where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Education. Soon after I began working as an early intervention instructor where I taught children with special needs. It was during my time in this environment where I found my calling to be a teacher. As a result, I decided to further pursue my education and received my Master of Art in Teaching Elementary Education and Special Education. Upon receiving my degree, I have taught Kindergarten and First grade for the past two years in an inclusion setting. This year will mark the official start of my third year teaching and I am incredibly excited to be joining ADS.
