TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been a certified elementary school counselor/school social worker (K-5) for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked for 7 years as an outpatient clinician for children ages 3 to 17.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style and self-created materials are very eclectic. I take concepts and practices from my favorite approaches (mostly CBT, Zones of Regulation, Mindfulness, Social Thinking, and Collaborative Problem-Solving), and combine them in a way that makes sense to me and is also research-based, fun, and kid-friendly. Products in my store reflect this. You'll also find that my materials have built-in flexibility, allowing you to use them in the way that feels most natural to you. If you're looking for very structured and scripted materials, I may not be your best resource. ALL products have been used extensively with my fabulous students, who are always more than happy to tell me how to improve my lessons! I take most of their advice, except when it comes to a vocal minority's repeated requests that I include fart jokes. You're welcome.
