I have been teaching in a Title 1 school for ten years. For the entire ten years I have taught K-6 Resource (SPED) with an incredible team of people. I have been very lucky to have some of the best in my path to learn from.
I really work hard to make sure that the students have a safe and productive learning environment. I want them to enjoy coming to my class. It is really important to me that they understand why they see me and also understand that they can do incredible things. We just have to work to find their strengths and move from there.
Yet to be added
I currently hold a Masters Degree in Special Education. I have been working in education since I was 17 years old from Preschool, students with autism across the spectrum, as well as cross categorical sped. students. This is what I was meant to do. : )
As a kid my brother was in resource for reading and students were not kind. He felt stupid and hated to go to resource. From there I worked in one of the self contained rooms in my high school which was eye opening in all the best ways. I was also apart of a pilot teaching program at my high school my senior year were I was almost a student teacher in a 5th grade classroom. From there I became a habilitation and respite worker for families and children with autism. In addition to all of that my son has an IEP. I have been on both sides of the table. I am always working on new and quick ways to support not only my own son but the kids in my class.
