I have taught grades K-6th grade and university level course for 12 years. I currently teach Special Education Mild & Moderate Disabilities for K-5th grade! I hold three Masters degrees 1 in Communication, 1 in Leadership in Teaching, and 1 in Special Education PK-12 grades. I love kids and I love teaching!
Classroom management is my strong suit and my teacher evaluations reflect this! I'm very organized and I love passing on my organizational skills to my students. I am very laid back and not much ruffles my feathers! I think it's important to go with the flow as a teacher, especially in Special Education!
