Currently, I am an itinerant special ed teacher serving students aged birth to 21 with orthopedic impairments in 8+ school districts. Previously, I taught self-contained and/or resource K-12, and general ed third grade. I have implemented many models of special ed services. I've also 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 district finalist at both the high school and elementary level.
*** My podcast, "Help for Special Educators" has been heard in over 50 countries!
*** 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.
