I've been teaching special education to students on the autism spectrum for the past 14 years. I spend a lot of time modifying lessons that touch on the Common Core Standards to give our students the pathways to learning that they need to succeed in their academic and social development.
Inclusive, Participatory,Collaborative, Student Centered.
* When my students get it! * When their parents thank me because their child made a new connection with them, showed a new understanding or expressed a skill they hadn't seen before at home or in the community.
I have a Master of Arts Degree from Columbia University in Social and Organizational Psychology. I also have a Master of Science Degree in Education from Hunter College, both from the state of New York.
I am licensed in Special Education grades 1-6 and in General Education 1-5.
