As a special education teacher specializing in deaf and hard of hearing students, I have developed materials for special purposes throughout my career. I have taught at every level and almost every subject. Designing materials for a specific purpose makes things much more relevant, learning is made much easier and much more understandable.
I've spent 30+ years developing special materials for special children.
