National Board Certified- Exceptional Needs Specialist
I have 22 years of classroom experience with students who have moderate to significant needs including mentally impaired, language impaired, Autistic, CP, Down's syndrome, Traumatic Brain injured, Rett syndrome, etc, as well as significant health/ communication and behavioral needs. I am trained in Applied Behavior Analysis, Picture Exchange Communication, Sensory Integration and sign language. I have background in various technology devices as well.
I am highly motivated and enjoy the triumphs and challenges that come along with working with individuals with unique needs. I have a sense of humor and nature that children of all ages seem to gravitate to- my classroom experiences have been from 3 years old to post school age 21 - 22 years. as the classroom teacher, I developed various care/ education and behavior plans and lessons that were modified to meet the student's unique needs and learning styles.
I love arts & crafts and music- I enjoy incorporating music and movement into lessons to make learning come alive for students!
