I have been a teacher for 19 years. My background is in Special Education. I started my career teaching Pre-K and Kindergarten. Over the years, I have worked with students in grades K-12. I also have taught Psychology and Education at the university level for 13 years. In 2015, I opened a school for students with learning differences. The school focuses on individualizing learning for each student.
My teaching philosophy is to build on student's strengths, to use multi-modal learning,to allow for sensory activities, and to differentiate teaching based on each student's needs. I enjoy creating curriculum that is hands-on and fun! The more engaged students are, the more they retain.
