I am currently teaching grades 7-12 special education. Most of my students are level 1, with a couple level 2 mixed in. I have students with reading (fluency & comprehension), math, and written language goals. Most of my time is spent providing support to students through Specially Designed Instruction during their study hall times. When my schedule allows I also co-teach in the general education English, and math classrooms. Prior to this position I taught level 3 special education, mostly autism, at the K-3 level. I also have experience teaching Kindergarten (1 year), Head Start (1 year), and toddlers at a day care center (1 year).
I mostly teach in small group and 1:1 settings.
I am a member of the CEC, and NEA/ISEA.
I have a BA in Unified Early Childhood Education with an Early Childhood Special Education minor from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). I also have a MA in Level 2 LD/BD special education for ages 6-21 from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA. I did most of the work for this degree online, with some ICN (Iowa Communications Network) classes.
I am a busy working mom, so I love to share resources and locate resources on TPT, and other web sites.
