TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a special education teacher for the past eighteen years. I am a very strong supporter of creating rich educational experiences for all students. However, students need access to instructionally appropriate materials in order to benefit from such an environment. I have always been frustrated by the lack of resources available to special education teachers who are supporting students in such rigorous educational environments. My lessons, outlines and study guides reflect years of work centering on creating positive and meaningful educational experiences for my students.
