I have 20 years of experience teaching Special Education students in various settings, including the general education inclusion setting. I work as an intervention teacher in the area of reading and language arts, serve as the leader of our school Literacy Professional Learning Community, and as the district ELA representative for my school.
I hold high expectations for all of my students. I believe they learn best through hands on experiences with many opportunities to interact and engage with text,
