I am currently a special education teacher in a 3rd/4th grade self-contained classroom in a public school in Orange County, NY. I have previously taught fifth grade inclusion as the special education teacher in a public school (Queens and Long Island) for three years and first grade as the general education teacher in a private school (Long Island).
I believe in using mindfulness and yoga to create a community and as a form of classroom management. I am environmentally friendly and hope to make my students active citizens in their communities and schools. It is my goal to have my students leave my classroom at the end of the year as positive, conscientious, and mindful children.
