I have been a resource specialist teacher for going on seven years where I teacher children with special needs access general education curriculum as well as meeting their specific needs. I have been a special educaiton teacher for a total of 12 years in both the speical day and resource pull out/ push in supports. I also do dozens of initial assessments and speical evaluaitons a year in order to help the school psychologist and the rest of the IEP team determine eligibilty, supporst and services for students with mild to moderate disability. I specialize in supporting students thrive in the least restictive environemnt by providing support for the student, family and general education teacher as well as all staff that assist the student in being successful.
I use a variety of approaches to reach a variety of learners. I start with high expectations and scaffold as needed. I believe in creating independent learners and also providing just enough support to help them be successful. I believe in motivating children through a loving learning environment where everyone feels acceppted.
