I am a 5th year Special Education Teacher for K-5th grade students with moderate/severe disabilities in a New York City public school. I love creating teaching materials and adapting instruction for this population.
I love the creativity involved when I adapt my instruction for my students. I create simplified, adapted texts for students. I also use a variety of visuals, musical toys, and tactile objects with my students. I use big and colorful visuals to help my students engage better with the material. I like using interactive musical toys that relate to the subject matter that I teach. I also use a variety of tactile objects so that students can explore and link classroom instruction to real, everyday things. :)
Yet to be added
I have a BA in Psychology and an MS.Ed in Teaching and Curriculum with a specialization in Childhood Inclusive Education from the University of Rochester.
First I drink the coffee, then I do the teaching.
