I started out as an ESE teacher in New York teaching students with very severe learning disabilities and handicaps. Once I moved to Florida in 2008, I taught self contained academic for two. Since the district was pushing for a larger inclusion program my classroom was dissolved and all of my students were pushed into mainstream classes. For the next two years I spend my time as a third grade co-teacher for reading and math. This year I left the ESE world to try my hands at basic education, Kindergarten. I LOVE my class this year and couldn't ask for anything better!
My teaching style is very hands on, multi-sensory and positive approach to education. I want my students to understand the concepts being taught in a fun way. I also like to link the "real wold" into my lessons. I felt that this was really important when I was teaching third grade.
Magna Cum Laude: BS Psychology Honor Society
I attended SUNY Cortland from 2001-2005 and graduated with my BS, magna cum laude, in General Education and Special Education. I was inducted into the Psychology Honor Society while attending SUNY Cortland. From there, I started my MS degree at Long Island University in Literacy Education. I have been completing many professional development classes ever since graduating to ensure that I am using up to date materials and strategies for my students.
