Special Education Teacher I have taught grades 3 - 5 special education students for the past 12 years.
My teaching style is tailored to the needs and interests of my students. I try to provide many visuals and hands-on opportunities to spark interest and motivation in my students learning. I also use lots of positive reinforcement and leadership roles within the classroom to build self-confidence.
