I have a bachelor of science degree from Saint Joseph's University and a masters of science degree from New York University. I am a speech language therapist working in the public schools. This is my first year as a speech teacher. I work with the medically fragile population as well as students on the Autistic Spectrum. My caseload ranges from 6 year olds to 13 year olds.
I enjoy adapting books. I think books are a great learning tool for all students. Since I work with a wide-range of skill levels, I work to make my activities to fit differentiated instruction. Many of my students are non-ambulatory and non-verbal so I need to be creative in finding ways for them to communicate, learn and be stimulated.
