TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have worked with kids who have special needs for 10 years, in many different fields and all sorts of disabilities. I have work in every special education section my district has (except gifted and talented) including: ILC (general catch-all), learning disabled, social emotional and behavior issues, autism severe needs, and dual diagnosis. I have also worked in Elementary, middle, and high school. I currently work in elementary ILC.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I tend to work with the more severe kids in a program and/or the kids with the most behavior problems. I love it and hope to continue to do so for a long, long time.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The Cherry Creek All Star Award and the Cherry Creek Golden Heart Award

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have 3/4 of a special education elementary degree but had to put it in pause due to some health issues.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I work hard to make sure my stuff has as much information as you can get out of it, including ways to modify the task up or down. I have also used all of the things I sell here in the classroom, as well as making some for other teachers in the district. I am not, however, great at getting thumbnails to work. Be assured that the actual product looks MUCH better than the thumbnails and makes better sense.
