I currently have been teaching for three years. I graduated from Indiana University with a bachelors degree in Elementary and Special Education. This qualifies me to teach K-12 Special Education and K-9 General Education. At my first job, I taught in Highland Park, IL as a half time special education resource teacher for grades K-5 and in the afternoon I was a self contained special education kindergarten teacher. For the past two years, I have been working in a low income area as a special education resource teacher for grades K-5. I have a lot of students with mild to significant needs on my caseload.
Hands on Learning with a focus on integrating curriculum, as well as using different modes of teaching in order to make the curriculum more accessible to all of my students. Differentiation is the key to success!
