11 years in the Special Education classroom following several years working in the community with individuals with disabilities.
I have a hands on, active approach to teaching and learning. I use positive incentive and reinforcement to motivate hesitant learners and try to make learning fun. I believe that there is much more to education than the standards. I use music, movement and social skills education to build a foundation for the students.
