I spent 9 years as a special education teacher within public school districts teaching learning support in elementary school, middle school, and vocational high school. After having my own children, I decided to work as a Behavior Specialist Consultant, specializing in working with children under the age of 10, many on the autistic spectrum. I have experience with a wide variety of special needs in both learning support and emotional support. In addition, all of my materials were created and used within a regular education setting and are therefore approachable and allow for differentiation.
I am structured, consistent, organized and flexible to students' individual needs
In 1999 I earned a BS in Special Education from Penn State University. In 2002 I earned a M.Ed in Special Education from Penn State University.
I have 2 young children and am interested in moving my professional path into more supervision, guidance and resource support. I would be more than happy to create individualized materials for your students with special needs (especially students in the inclusion setting) as well as materials to assist you in your data collection and assist in behavioral interventions and support.
