I am a NYS certified special education teacher and absolutely love working with special needs children. I have over four years' experience working in a integrated special needs preschool, along with several years of home care experience. I taught at the Center for Disability Services for four years in the Cloverpatch Early Childhood Education program. I worked with a wide range of students including those diagnosed with multiple disabilities, autism, asperger's, emotionally disturbed, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, etc. I have a vast knowledge base of how to teach PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) along with the foundations of ABA therapy. I also have a high experience level working in RAAVE (Responsibly Addressing Autism via Education) classrooms with children on the autistic spectrum and/or non-verbal students. My experience in this setting has taught me a multitude of behavior management techniques along with communication methods. I have also worked with a student diagnosed with autism in his home in order to improve social, play, communication and academic skills. I recently completed my Master's degree in Special Education and currently hold certification in Childhood Education, along with Special Education. My degree and teaching experience in Special Education has led me to become very interested in the field of psychology and what motivates students intrinsically and extrinsically to display certain behaviors. I am very passionate about teaching and absolutely love children. I find it so rewarding to watch them grow and learn.
