As a certified ESE teacher in FL, I taught for over 16 years primarily with children on the autism spectrum. In 2015, I became trained as a children's yoga teacher through Kidding Around Yoga. I left the formal classroom to tutor and work with homeschooling families with children having various special needs. I also taught kids yoga in preschools, community centers and libraries as well as co-taught a kids yoga summer camp for 2 years. I began creating TPT products in 2016. In 2017, my husband and our two children, recently graduated from high school, traveled throughout the USA. I continued to create products for TPT as we traveled. In 2019, I was trained through the Mindful Schools curriculum to teach children and staff mindfulness techniques to use within the classroom.
My multi-grade VE classroom was always diverse, with students from a variety of backgrounds and language needs due to ELL and language impairments as well as ASD and other varying exceptionalities. I always incorporated visuals, structure, social skills, language and a literature rich, hands-on learning and technology environment to reach students in a variety of ways. I also incorporated the students' personal interests as much as possible, especially in research and writing projects.
