I am a second year special education teacher for students with moderate to severe disabilities. I teach students with multiple disabilities, autism, down syndrome, and intellectual disabilities.
We love age-appropriate hands-on learning! I try to incorporate functional skills into our daily curriculum, while accommodating for various behavior needs as well as communication styles.
Yet to be added
I bounced around the world a lot growing up, until we settled in Cairo, Egypt, as an expat--and LOVED it! I got a BA in Music from the University of Tulsa (my instruments are harp and voice - and sort of piano :) ) and then a Masters in Special Education and Elementary Education from DePaul. I am working on my certificate in ABA (to become a BCBA!) through Florida Institute of Technology.
I am in the process of starting up a Best Buddies program at my school. Any advice? Let me know!! :)
