Sixteen years experience teaching special education. Teaching experiences includes self-contained non-diploma bound students as well as inclusion. I am presently a special education resource teacher in Baltimore County. I provide staff development for teachers, parents, administrators and related services providers. Worked with students with Autism, and significant cognitive deficits. Modified academic learning standards to enable students with special needs (i.e. learning disabilities, Autism, Down Syndrome) to access grade-level curriculum.
