For over the past 10 years, I have had the pleasure of working with children ages 2 to 15 in both public and private settings. I was a preschool teacher at a NAEYC accredited school servicing children with varying socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. The classroom consisted of up to 20 students ages three to five with some students on Individualized Education Programs. My responsibilities included creating and implementing a developmentally appropriate program, based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, Common Core State Standards and the COR assessment. My background is in Special Education and Fine Arts. I am DESE certified in Moderate Disabilities, pre-k- 8 and 5-12, as well as EEC certified as a Lead Preschool Teacher, Director I, II. I have had the opportunity to work with children with varying needs and backgrounds, including emotional/behavioral, autism, specific learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, visual and auditory impairment. Through these experiences, I have had the benefit of being able to differentiate instruction based on the specific needs of each student and promote their creativity, independence and individual strengths.
Currently, I have had the pleasure of working in the New Bedford Public Schools with children kindergarten through fifth grade. I enjoy doing hands- on art activities, games, nature walks and swimming. I look forward to working with your children and helping them reach their highest potential while having fun!
