TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Inclusion can work with the right tools, strategies and some good old fashioned dedication. I use the basic principles of ABA (applied behavior analysis) as my foundation for teaching. I first learned about ABA by working for 4 years with adults with autism in a private school that adhered to ABA models. After that I went back to school to get a master's degree in Special Education. I have been teaching in public school for 8 years now and I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I have taught in both self-contained and inclusive classrooms. I work with students who need significant behavior support as well as specialized academic support.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I strive to have my students feel good in the classroom even if they struggle socially or academically. I provide supports that show them the good things they are achieving during the day and I downplay the areas for which they did not achieve a lot of success. Though I often have to help students identify something they did wrong I do it so that we can make a plan for how to meet with positive outcomes the next time they face the same situation. I want to celebrate my students' seemingly small successes in building their skill sets, even if their learning pace is different that of their peers.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

When a child looks up at you hopefully and says "will you always be my teacher?" you feel honored.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology from Rutgers University, a master's degree in special education from The College of New Jersey and I am a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in the "Garden State" of New Jersey where I've planted more trees and perennials than any sane person with a full time job probably should. My husband and I enjoy working on our 100-year old house and relish evenings on the couch with our two spoiled dogs.
