Thank you for visiting my store! :) I started teaching Sunday School when I was 14. I discovered that I had the talent and passion for teaching and helping children to learn. I started teaching children with special needs in 2004, straight after graduating from college. I was an NILD educational therapist and a literacy and numeracy specialist overseas. Currently, I am a special needs teacher in Melbourne.
I love hands-on learning. I love using manipulatives and engaging children with multi-modal activities. I love seeing kids have their "light bulb moment" - and that is (drum roll)...discovery learning.
"The best teacher ever" Award - I get to receive this award from time to time when my students are having a good day and when I feed and pay them. :)
