I am in my sixth year teaching Special Education students at the High School Level with Emotional Disturbance (ED or EBD). I also teach US History in Summer School each year- which is another passion of mine!
If you are a high school Special Education teacher, especially one that teaches Social Skills, you KNOW there is NOT A LOT out there in regards to curriculum to use for high school students with ED/EBD... Therefore, I do use what curriculum I can find BUT I do love to create my own Social Skills lessons based on educational books, research studies and other Social Skills curriculum. I also have US History resources that I have created over the years as I have taught mostly students who need remedial services during summer school sessions!
Yet to be added
I have a Master's Degree in Special Education (Strategist). I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education- Social Science Composite :)
Other Things I Love (BESIDES Teaching): - My hubby, Mr. Q - My dog, Mr. Winston Churchill (the cutest Toy Schnauzer in the world) - Starbucks! - Traveling (especially cruises!) - Playing Sports - Barnes & Noble - Documentaries on Netflix - Renovating my 101 year old home - Antique Shopping - Watching HGTV - Running 5K and 10K races... When I'm not lazy :)
