TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a retired Special Education teacher with over 20 years experience teaching grades 1 through 8 in elementary and middle school settings. I started out teaching special kids in a self-contained classroom and eventually moved to a resource room. Later, I was invited to teach graduate level courses for the Literacy Department at a Long Island, NY college. I loved teaching the aspiring teachers as well as those veteran teachers who wanted a master’s degree in literacy or special education. When I retired from public school the Director of Special Services asked me to return on a part-time basis to become the district’s first official teacher mentor for new Special Education teachers. That was a great way to continue to share with new teachers. Unfortunately, this position ended when the district had economic problems, like many other districts, and had layoffs for the first time in decades. No new teachers, no need for a mentor. That was a very sad day for all, mostly the kids.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Even though I am retired, I will always be a Special Education teacher at heart. When creating resources my goal is always to prepare lessons that encourage even the most reluctant learners to become active participants. My materials require students to engage in hands-on learning and provide opportunities for them to experience success so they want to participate. Teachers need to turn reluctant learners into can-do kids.
