I am a teacher working with students in special education in grades kindergarten through fourth. I have worked with students with a variety of disabilities and have my Master's in Special Education. I have my ASD, DCD, EBD, and LD licenses.
Infusing student interests into fun learning styles focusing on individual student needs is how I like to plan my lessons and drive my IEPs. Students that are engaged are learning, excited, invigorated and acting appropriately.
I received a local dedicated teacher award last year.
I attended undergraduate school at Minnesota State University Moorhead and also received my Master's degree from the same college.
I love my job as I get to interact with a variety of students every day. The tough part is to constantly be creating materials for students to best suit their needs. My mission is to help other special education teachers in the same tricky predicament between being a rock-star teacher and have a life.
