TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught students with special needs for the past fifteen years. I have taught grades Kindergarten to 8th in all subject areas. I have taught students with Autism, learning disabilities, behavioral issues, ADD, visual and hearing impairments and physical disabilities. I hope to continue serving these students for another fifteen years!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that all students can achieve greatness! It is up to the teacher to enable students to reach their full potential. I teach students the way the learn, which means I may need to teach a particular concept in several different ways to reach all my students. I teach primarily using visual and hands on techniques.
