I currently teach students aged birth to 21 with orthopedic impairments. For over 23 years I have taught special ed to all grades K-12 except for middle school. In addition, I taught 3 years of general ed third grade. I have implemented many models of special ed services: pull out and push in/full inclusion for kids working on grade level goals, and self-contained classes with students working more at their own level. For the last few years I've taught Extended School Year in a medically fragile moderate/severe class at a county center-based site.
I like to think of myself as an academic coach: training and equipping, then cheering on my students as they meet their goals. "Love is a better teacher than duty." -Albert Einstein
I was honored to be the "Teacher of the Year" at my school and finalist for the district in 2014 and 1994. I have also enjoyed being a master teacher for CSU, Fresno student teachers, as well as a mentor for colleagues as they earn additional credentials or begin teaching special ed.

California Teaching Credentials:
Special Ed: Mild/Moderate Disabilities (Preschool-12), Orthopedic Impairment Authorization (Birth-21), Autism Authorization, Resource Specialist Certificate. General Ed: Multiple Subjects (K-6), CLAD (Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development).
