I have spent the last 8 years teaching special education, focusing on students with mild to moderate disabilities. My students typically have multiple disabilities and cannot always learn in the "same" ways as other students.
I teach mainly in hands-on ways where my students can interact with the material they are learning.
I've been voted Teacher of the Month several times and have given presentations to district special education staff regarding best practices for goal writing, standards-based curriculum, and creative lesson planning.
I have a master's in reading curriculum with a focus in special education.
I have a 10 year old black lab named Grace that is training to become a therapy dog and will hopefully be able to start coming to school soon!
