I have taught in childcare, preschool, kindergarten, first grade, special education inclusion, and a self contained classroom in special education. I am currently teaching a developmental communication classroom which is primarily for students that are non verbal with autism.
I am a super structured and organized teacher. However, I believe that there has to be room to teach flexibility and change. My classroom is very nurturing and my students are as close to my heart as my own children. I believe the classroom should be a home away from home.
I have been trained in ABA therapy and discrete trials. I am PECs trained.
I have a B.S. in Human Ecology based in Child Development with Teaching Licensure in both general education and special education. I am currently working on my Masters in Special Education.
I am a mommy to two lovely little girls and five spunky cats. I love to make dollhouses and do all sorts of arts and crafts.
