For the past three years I taught a Structured Learning Classroom, a self-contained classroom for autistic students ages 3 to 10 . I have mentored beginning teachers and conducted district level trainings regarding special education issues. I have written a variety of grant proposals for school districts, including the Reading First federal grant.
