I have taught Kindergarten, 4th grade math/science, 7th/8th grade maths and an Autism primary (mixed K-2nd) class. I have also been practicing ABA therapy 9 years in school settings in addition to with private clients. I am now my schools ESE Specialist/LEA and Response to Intervention (RTI) Coordinator for the 4th year. My passion are special education, behavior and interventions.
Creative, Engaging, Positive! I believe in challenging students and teaching them to be independent and confident. I love hands on, but try to touch on all learning styles; with an ESE background I truly believe that every child can learn but in their own way.
