I have been teaching special education for over 20 years and love it!! I have extensive training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB), PECS and teaching students with language based disabilities.
My teaching style is eclectic. I believe teachers need to be flexible and responsive to students' needs. Most of my teaching incorporates language development, manipulatives, movement and hands-on opportunities. I strongly believe that lessons and materials can and should be made to accommodate multiple levels.

My degree is in special education and my masters is in reading.
I strive to give teachers the resources, knowledge and confidence needed to take their students to a deeper level of instruction and understanding. My resources include multiple levels to save you time and to allow you to use the same materials with all of your students.
