TEACHING EXPERIENCE

24 years of teaching experience, including special education, speech pathology, and early intervention in public schools.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is that of a pragmatic approach to provide naturalistic activities for students with communication deficits. I am skilled in verbal behavior techniques, as well as ABA methodologies. Through real world examples and familiar context that students can relate to, my products make it easy to implement and generalize concepts to special education students.
