TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have completed 2 years as a 4th and 5th grade special education teacher for students with learning disabilities, behavioral disabilities, mental handicaps, and other health impairments. For the 2012-2013 school year, I will also be teaching 3rd grade. I try to do as much co-teaching in the general education classroom as possible, but all have pull-out groups for intense, focused interventions.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Because I am a special education teacher, I do a lot of direct, focused instruction. I love co-teaching with general education teachers, and try to incorporate more of it every year. I really feel that keeping my students with special needs in the classroom is the best way for most of them to learn. I love to engage my students in hands-on activities. I have them 'be the teacher' a lot, which not only lets me see what they have learned, but also allows them to gain confidence when teaching to their peers.
