When working with children who are nonverbal, I've found Mr. Potato Head is one of my very first go-to's alongside bubbles, water play, and play dough. Sometimes verbal language is not something the child is able to do currently, therefore we begin

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Working in the schools has always been a passion of mine. I have experience working with children ages PreK-12th and have worked with low-income children and families for over five years. I began college as an elementary education major with a focus in math education. During my second year of school, I found myself working for an after school program with low-income, "at-risk" middle school students. It was this experience that led me to what you may call a "tipping point," where I found myself hooked on learning, the classroom, and the challenges we face in our education system today. During my time with the after school program I worked in three different schools with three different populations. Since then I have gained experience working with special populations of children who have autism, Downs syndrome, Fragile X, ADD/ADHD, and a variety of other disabilities. I currently work in two urban schools where resources are limited and obstacles are abundant. Each of these adventures has shaped me into the professional I am today. I am looking forward to participating in the TPT community where my therapy "toolbox" can expand by receiving and sharing learning strategies from classrooms and therapy rooms around the globe.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a strong advocate for a collaborative classroom/workplace. I have personally experienced the greatest amount of growth when working with other professionals and find that students benefit most when they are surrounded by a team of professionals working together to help them succeed.
