I've worked with children of all ages for over 10 years as a Special Education Para-Educator (Los Angeles Unified School District) helping students that have special needs in addition to tutoring for families in the Los Angeles area. Some of my responsibilities are, but not limited to implementing lessons specific to each child, helping with homework, promoting language and writing skills in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. My areas of expertise are Special Education(All Subjects), Foreign Language (Spanish and Portuguese), Social Studies, Geography, Elementary Math and English. I never expected to do this line of work; it just happened so by accident and I don't regret it all. I've learned so much, met amazing individuals and it's been an awesome ride. I'm passionate about what I do and I believe in this career you have to be able to show empathy, patience and love kids. I love to travel, learning about and experiencing different cultures and helping people.
