I have been a special education teacher in South Carolina for 9 years. My first year was spent in a 7th and 8th grade Learning Disabilities Self Contained Classroom. I then taught Resource in middle school for 5 years. I then embarked on the roller coaster ride of an Elementary Emotional Disabilities Self Contained Classroom. I went back to middle school for two years to teach students with Mild Intellectual Disabilities. Finally, this year, I am back in an elementary classroom teaching a Cross Categorical self contained classroom. All the varied experiences have left me feeling Tangled Up in Teaching!
I do my best to adapt my teaching style as it pertains to each student in my classroom.
No official awards or honors, but I feel pretty honored to be entrusted with the lives, education, and future of some pretty great kids.
Bachelor's Degree in Generic Special Education and a Master's Degree in Divergent Learning, both from Columbia College, Columbia, SC.
I'm just a small town girl, teaching in a small town world, looking to do whatever it takes to help my children succeed.
