I taught six years in regular education (pre-k through first grade). Now, I'm teaching in a self-contained autistic support classroom for my fifth year of teaching special education. I love my students dearly and value every lesson that they have taught me. I have a passion for working with students with autism and get such inspiration from them every day.
I love to be super organized. Things have to have a home, a purpose, and a meaningful reason that they are in my classroom. I hate clutter and think that it is so overwhelming when there is too much going on in a classroom. I think that products I purchase or make for myself need to be used in multiple scenarios to maximize their use. I love to teach with hands-on activities that keep the students engaged.
Yet to be added
I went to Millersville University and received my bachelors in elementary and early childhood education. Then I decided a year later to go back and get my masters in special education. I received my masters in special education from Saint Joseph's University in August of 2014.
I have always wanted to be a teacher and love sharing my ideas with others!
