My first year of teaching was teaching 5th and 6th grade LD at an inner city school in Indiana. I then married and moved to New Jersey where I taught at a special needs school my students were junior and senior high students. My husband was then transferred back to Indiana where I worked with 1st graders. He was then transferred to France where I taught English to French preschool and lower elementary students. I also tutored native English speaking students in reading. He was then transferred back to the US where I taught at a Montessori School for ASD students, When the school closed I started working as an ABA therapist doing center and in home based therapy. We then moved again to Missouri where I taught at a special needs school for ASD children. I now work out of my home.
I utilize Montessori, ABA, and traditional methods when I work with a student.
