ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been a resource teacher for 19 years and love it (except for the paperwork). I am currently teaching a Communication Behavior Social Skills class primarily for students with Autism. My students have a wide range of skills so my future resources will be at many different levels. I am lucky to have a wonderful family. I couldn't do what I do without the support of my husband and my two kids (19 year old boy and 15 year old girl).
