TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Student teaching in a 4th through 6th grade special day class; student teaching in a K-6 learning center; in my fourth year working as a 7-8 special day class teacher.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a special education teacher, I do everything I can to break down my lessons and scaffold them, so my students can have success. I give my students unique supports so that they can demonstrate the same skills as general education students, just in a different way.
