I am currently an 8th year Special Education Teacher. Prior to this, I spent 5 years working in a corporate environment as a trainer/education consultant. I have a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Special Education.
My classroom is a hybrid of inclusive education, pull-out, and vocational skill building. I have implemented methods of the TEACCH program that focuses on structured teaching to better serve my students. This year takes me on a new journey as I co-teach (as co-teach should look) 4 classes a day in addition to 2 pullout classes that focus on literacy development for students with SLD and EBD.

During the 2012-2013 school year, I was a 7-12 CD Functional Skills Special Education teacher. I spent the school year creating and developing this program due to its previous non-existence. It was been a spectacular journey with its fair share of bumps, tears, victories and growth for all of my students and myself. I created a solid foundation for continued program for development. The 2013-2014 school year has taken me to a new program, building a transition program (life and work skills) for students with SLD/EBD/Autism.
