25+ years teaching special education at all levels. Most of my time was spent at the high school level tutoring all subjects in resource room and teaching English, math, science, social studies, and life skills in the self-contained classroom.
I like to use the Socratic method. I also use scaffolding.
I was honored (and rewarded) every time one of my special ed students walked across the stage and received his or her diploma.
B.S. in Education from Slippery Rock University M.S.Ed from SUNY Fredonia
