TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am in my eighth year of teaching special education in a wonderful school district in New Jersey. My students have autism as well as other disabilities. While most of my time has been with 5th and 6th grade, I also have experience with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. I cannot imagine my life without these wonderful students. They are truly the most amazing people I have ever met, and they deserve the best.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that all children, regardless of their disability, can and will learn through good teaching and consistent, direct instruction. I like to establish a learning environment that fosters trust and respect, allowing my students to build character while studying all subject areas in a safe classroom. I teach reading, writing, math, social skills, science, and social studies on a regular basis.
