I taught Early Childhood Special Education for 21 years; seventeen of those years were in a Title I school. Prior to that I taught general education first grade for one year and preschool for several years. I also taught special education in a private alternative high school for three years. I really love preschoolers the best!
Teaching in the Naturalistic Environment, hands-on activities, art every day, play based learning and lots of fun!
