TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Special Learners since 2014. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work in all different types of classroom settings: alternative school, traditional school, and montessori.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love getting to know my students and their learning styles to create and use materials to help them comprehend. Special education has allowed me the freedom to utilize materials and strategies from the variety of types of schools that I have worked in. Now that I feel like finally have this whole IEP writing and implementing thing down, I am ready to spend my time and effort on striving to give my students the best instruction that I can provide! Hopefully some other teachers can benefit from the materials as well.
