TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Contact me at: secondaryspedstore@gmail.com

I am a proud Special Education ELA teacher and teacher educator currently celebrating ten years of classroom teaching.

Born and raised in Oakland, California and now living and teaching in Hilo, Hawaii my focus is on culturally relevant education for secondary special education students.

I have taught extensively in inclusion, self-contained, and severe special education settings serving urban, suburban, and rural students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am passionate about literacy development, writing, and service learning. I believe learning differences can be gifts and I love watching my students develop their strengths. I am most proud when I see my students contributing to their communities in positive ways.

I strive to be a 'warm demander' and I believe in supporting students in their beautiful struggle with functional, media, and critical literacies.
