I have been an elementary special education teacher since 2007. Much of my experience has been working with students that have emotional or behavioral needs. I have taught my own self-contained classroom, co-taught with a general education teacher, and have pushed in to provide support and modifications.
I believe that all students have the potential to surprise us. When a student feels safe to make mistakes, they will take more chances and they will soar!
