TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have a vast professional experience and have taught grades kindergarden through 10th grade in regular education and special education. While in regular education I taught a 5th grade EIP class as well as being the regular ed 5th grade counterpart in an inclusion classroom. Special education models I have taught include inclusion, resource, small group, and self-contained. My experiences include teaching a 6th through 9th grade classroom in a building that specialized solely with students who had severe behavioral issues and had been removed from their home school. I was also hired at Warren Township High School in Illinois to design and implement their self-contained program for 9th and 10th graders dealing with severe emotional issues. I have worked successfully with students with disabilities ranging from learning disabilities, MID, autism, and emotional/behavioral disorders. I am certified in every subject (LA, Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies) in both regular education and special education in grades pre-k through 8th grade and an additional certification for high school language arts. I also hold a certification as a Teacher Support Specialist as well as in Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. Personally, my youngest son was diagnosed with Autism as a toddler, and my oldest son was diagnosed with ADHD. As such I have been able to make a stronger connection to the parents I work with as I am knowledgeable of their struggles and concerns. Also as a parent of students with disabilities, I go the extra mile to communicate with families and to provide a connection and transition between home and school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

While being very structured, I like to use humor and fun activities to keep kids engaged. I incorporate activities that allow kids to participate at the smart board and use games to keep them interested. There's nothing better than "tricking" them into learning. I also use different types of modalities such as visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. The more ways you give them information, the more chances they have to retain it.
