My experience has been for eight years with the Capistrano Unified School District. I have worked with many different grades, pre-kindergarten through ninth grade.
My experience in working with these children has been in Behavior Management strategies and techniques relating to pupils experiencing atypical control problems. I also assisted in teaching subjects, such as Arithmetic, Science, Grammar, Spelling, Reading and Physical Education.
I've worked with children with Autism, severe learning handicaps, emotional disturbances, and physical handicaps.

I love caring for special needs children, as I do with all children, because it's fun and pleasurable for me. I do it because I love the challenge of helping someone be happy, gain confidence, and make progress. To me, it 's a privilege and honor to work with children with disabilities and help them reach their full potential. It's a pursuit that is meaningful, authentic, fulfilling, and highly enjoyable.
I am a very understanding, patient, and respectful person to all people I come across.
If I sound like the person you're looking for in caring for your child, please contact me.
