TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello everyone. I have been teaching in the field of Special Education for 16 years in isolated classes within Special Schools. I teach autistic Junior students who are significantly to profoundly intellectually impaired. Many also have ADHD and all are non-speaking. I started in early intervention, a short time teaching inclusion in regular school and the bulk of my career has been in self-contained classes at special schools in Australia and for the last 5 years, back in NZ.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Strengths-based teaching in a neurodiversity affirming way. I teach in small class groups and individual lessons in school and in the community. I utilise AAC, stories, visuals, play, task boxes, movement, sensory, structure and routines. Lots of hands on learning Communication, literacy for all, building trust in relationships, along with daily living skills, are the focus of my day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My awards are the gains in communication, literacy, and daily living skills the students make.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Post Grad Certificate in Early Years education with a focus on 4-8 year olds. Bachelor of Education Special Ed (4 year degree).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in beautiful New Zealand. I am a wife to Kev and a mum to our Autistic young man.
