I have been a Special Education Teacher for six years. For the past year I have been a Special Day Class, Moderate Teacher. I have had the privilege of teaching a diverse range of learners with various behavioral needs. For the previous five years I was a Resource Specialist and taught students with mild to moderate needs. Working with a culturally diverse population has given me the confidence to succeed anywhere.
I am a passionate Special Education Teacher skilled at educating a diverse range of students with various cognitive abilities. I have in-depth knowledge of instructional strategies and Individualized Education Plans (IEP). I am committed to providing instruction that is rigorous and accessible.
