I am a Special Education teacher for students with multiple disabilities including Autism, Emotional Disturbance, and Other Health Impaired. I have been teaching for 6 years, 3 in an elementary setting and 3 in a middle school with students ranging from 4th grade all the way up to 11th grade.
My teaching style is very hands on and visual based on the kids that I teach. They learn best with visuals and communicate best with technology both high and low tech. I find that these visuals work well with both typically developing students and students in special education. With typically developing students you may want to give them worksheets because they CAN do them; however, ask yourself, would you rather do something creative or a worksheet?
Teacher of the Year Nominee for four years.
I have my Bachelor's in English with a Concentration in Literature and a Minor in Special Education. My Master's is in Special Education. I am working on my certification to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
I have 2 little girls of my own that I love applying my teaching skills to!!
