I am in my seventh year teaching special education to students in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. For the last six years I taught self-contained special education. This is my first year to teach inclusion.
I find out where each student is, and then I encourage them to reach their greatest potential. I treat each student as an individual, and I teach them how to use their strengths to cope with their disabilities.
