I have more than thirteen years of experience working with children of varying special needs and a variety of ages (from two years to eighteen years). I was a behavior therapist for children with disabilities, a special education teacher and I am currently working with adolescents in a therapeutic position.
EDUCATION should be MODIFIED, ADAPTED, INDIVIDUALIZED AND FULL OF LOVE.

I have worked in urban areas and with the most difficult populations of special ed my entire career. I find that children who are given a reason to be motivated, shown love, given compassion and who find a teacher that understands and believes in them blossom and grow to their fullest potential. The children we parent, teach, counsel,and love are our future, we should treat as if they are all we have.
