1st year special education teacher with a passion for emotional/behavioral self-regulation and social skills! I teach students with emotional/behavioral disabilities in a resource-style program.
I believe that students need to take ownership of their learning before they can be successful. My goal is to empower my students with the social/behavioral skills they need to be successful in their general education classes (and in their futures), so that they no longer need my support. If I set my expectations high, my students will meet them! More than anything, if I teach my students with care, love, and respect, I believe that they will grow into the amazing young men and women I know they can be (and often already are)!
Graduated from my undergraduate program as a double major (special education and Deaf education) with a 4.0 GPA. Presented at the CEC 2015 Annual Conference
Bachelor's Degree in Special Education (PreK-age 22) Bachelor's Degree in Deaf Education (PreK-age 22)
Life outside of teaching includes spending time with family and friends and eating delicious, plant-based foods. I plan to pursue a master's degree in education psychology or social work, before getting my BCBA certificate. #behaviorismyjam
