I work with children with Down Syndrome, seizure disorder, CP, ASD. I have worked with children in wheel chairs, walkers.
Truly whatever disability the child comes to us with, I am there to help them with an education they deserve with all the modifications and accommodations they need to be successful. I assist my teacher in every capacity. I am great at modifying curriculum for the kids to better understand the subject. I have been in this particular field for 12 years at the same school. I have been to Jefferson County Outdoor Lab Program assisting the kids.
I love what I do and love the freedom of being able to teach life skills and curriculum at the same time, and the flexibility to take the time needed to move on. I love the connection and bonding that takes place. I still have students as personal friends along with their family.
