TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My 24 years of teaching experience include teaching an SLD/EH resource room, regular elementary education (Gr. 3), and serving as a resource teacher at a K-8 catholic school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a resource teacher, I assist regular education teachers in providing accommodations for those students with identified learning needs. Modifications to tests need to be simple and easy to use and not create an additional burden on the teacher. My modified tests provide for simple accommodations, with the added benefit of the teacher being able to use the same answer key.
