TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a special education teacher for 12 years now. When I first started I had my own class that was self contained. These students had mild cognitive disabilities. There were about twelve students in my room and they were at the third grade level. I taught in this room for about three years. I then, because of downsizing, was moved to a jr./sr. high school. I taught there for two years. I would go to general education classes with my students and provide extra support. I also taught two hours a day of English classes at that time. I then taught in a room for students with emotional disabilities for two years. I had six students that I was trying to get to transition in to general education classrooms. This was my most challenging position in my career so far. These students had very difficult situations/behaviors they were dealing with. Currently, and for the last five years, I have been teaching students with special needs in grades that range from kindergarten to second grade. I pull these students from their regular class and work with them in small groups on concepts they are struggling with. I do love my job and my students. I have been in a variety of classrooms since I started teaching 12 years ago. I have had students with a wide range of disabilities since I have started.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very flexible teacher. I am not one of those teachers that sticks to my plans. I pay attention to and read my students and change plans accordingly. I like to let my students have choices every day. If I can tell there is something wrong with one of my students we may have a little counseling session before we get started with lesson. Sometimes I believe this is a very important step. I teach in a high poverty rate school so my students are usually dealing with situations they should not even know about. I want my students to be happy at school and feel proud of their progress.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated college with honors (Suma Cum Laude). I graduated with a 3.95 grade point average.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Attended Indiana State University for four and a half years. My major was special education. I still take graduate courses online in special education periodically.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been married for nine years. We have four children. They range in age from eight to nine months. Needless to say we are very busy. :) I wouldn't have it any other way. My life is children, both at work and at home. It is something I love to be a part of.
