I have worked as a teacher assistant for two years before enrolling in the Project ASD program at UCF and working to obtain my Master of Education in Exceptional Student Education. I graduate with my degree this December 2017 and have already obtained my professional teaching certificate and endorsement in Autism. I have taught for two years in a self-contained autism classroom grades 3-5.
I am very organized and use Board maker and PowerPoint presentations for everything! I use visuals for every area of my classroom and maintain a daily routine to assist in reducing behaviors and eliminating barriers to success.
