I have been teaching in special education for 16 years. My favorite thing to do is take standards and grade level curriculum and make it accessible for students with disabilities. I focus on intervention in the areas of basic reading skills, math, writing, and comprehension. I also assist with language and vocabulary development and high school transition and self-advocacy skills.
I use a multi-sensory approach to instruction and try to make learning interactive and hands-on.

I am a wife and mother of 3 "Fries" and a dog. I LOVE teaching. I have worked in 4 very different districts within my 16 years of teaching. I enjoy baking, reading educational research articles, delving into Assistive and Educational Technology, practicing sign language, drinking coffee and hanging out with family and friends.
