I developed my interest in working with individuals with special needs while working with children with autism and developmental delays at a preschool. After this, I began college and pursued a degree in Special Education. I now have my Master's degree in Special Education and 9 years of teaching experience. Through my teaching, I worked with 6 to 8th grade students with diverse needs including intellectual disabilities. I have also worked at a school for children with severe behavioral and emotional needs. I have been an elementary school teacher for students with moderate-severe intellectual disabilities and I am currently working with high school students. I have a passion to work with and improve the lives of children with special needs.
I am a teacher in the area and I therefore have all criminal background checks completed and can provide a copy upon request. Due to my current work schedule, I am only available for part-time care on weekends and evenings.
