I have taught students across the special education continuum including students with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, as well as intellectual disabilities. Additionally I have worked with both elementary and high school aged students helping them all to be successful!
I am a big fan of 'following a child's lead' and spent two years teaching in a DIR Floortime School for children with neurodevelopmental disorders of relating and communicating including PDD and autism When you follow a child's lead, its not that you let them do whatever they want, its that you follow their interests and passions to keep them engaged and excited about the learning. By joining their world you can entice them to join yours!
B.S. in Special Education from the University of Maryland in 2009 M.Ed. in Elementary Special Education from the University of Maryland in 2010
I love teaching and helping all children be successful!
