I have been teaching a self-contained primary level class since 2001 for the same school district. The make up of my class changes yearly so I am always looking to spice things up.
If my students are not mastering a skill...what can I do differently? Sometimes simple is better.
Teacher of the Year 2011 in my district
Undergraduate degree- B.S. Marine Biology Master's degree- M.S. Education (General and Special Education)
I began my adult journey with hopes of saving marine mammals. I worked at a small fish hatchery and aquarium for some time but needed to pay my bills. I decided to take on a teaching job in an independent special education school. My first day began with being bit by Bobby and ended with hugs from Bobby. I went home thinking, "This day was awesome!", and from there I was determined to become a teacher. I love my job, my students, and the challenges I face daily!
