I'm currently in my 9th year of teaching Special Education self-contained in Kindergarten - 2nd grades. I taught Special Education Resource for one year to students K-6th grade (and a few middle schoolers).
Enthusiastic and VISUAL! I'm such a visual person, I have to have graphs and visual representations. I guess that's why I teach Special Education - I benefit from the picture schedules too!
Little boy who didn't speak a word to me for 2 entire weeks was leaving the classroom one day and turned around to say, "I wub eww, Ms. Bwana." **still warms my heart!
Bachelor's Degree from Samford University in Elementary Education K-6 and Special Education PreK-2. Master's Degree from Auburn University in Special Education K-12.
I'm a mommy of 2 wild and crazy guys (6 and 5 yrs) and a little princess (1 year) who keep me very busy when I'm not at school! I have a great husband whom I couldn't do without! And my passion for people of all abilities to be included in community activities has lead me to adore and promote The Miracle League of Gardendale, AL (a baseball buddy program for kids-adults with special needs) and the ministry of Highlands Haven, through Church of the Highlands, all people (babies-adults) can attend church in the environment most appropriate for them (kids worship, main service, etc) with caring teens and adults who share God's message of love and purpose for ALL people.
