I have been teaching for over 15 years now. I have taught every grade from first through eighth - but always special education! My specialties include learning disabilities, behavior, and social emotional! And my resources reflect these learners! My products are for DiVeRSe learners!!! I am also a Wilson Reading certified trainer! Check out my teaching blog @ Miss Rae's Room Follow me on Instagram for how I use my products, lesson ideas, and teaching strategies! Check out my graduate level courses @ The Learning Tree Professional Development Network Every experience is a learning one, and I consider myself to be a lifelong learner!
My classroom style revolves around the 2 R's... Respect and Relationships! Respect is mutual, and building positive relationships (student to student and teacher to student) is KEY! Oh, and I believe that humor and sarcasm can go a long way! :)
