I am a Special Education Teacher and I teach a functional life skills curriculum. I have taught for 10 years and have a degree in Psychology with a minor in Education. I have my Masters in Learning Disabilities as well. I have worked extensively with parents, educators, transition partners, community partners and administration in order to master my teaching.
I utilize many styles in my classroom. We have a very diverse set of students. I have students that are non-verbal all the way up to kids who are verbal and doing multiplication and budgeting. In my class we use a lot of discussion, hands on experience, manipulatives, games and fun to learn. We are a very active class and spend time in our community whenever we can.
Masters in Education
