I am a paraprofessional for a school district. I work with 7th and 8th grade students with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities. This past year, we had about 15 students. I primarily have experience working with kids with Down's syndrome, autism (mild to extremely severe), and cerebral palsy. We have lesson plans that include calendar, work boxes, site word cards, telling time exercises, letter recognition exercises, and more. I also have experience working with special needs kids in a physical education setting, as well as feeding and rest-rooming. I have a passion for working with kids with special needs, and seeing them reach their potential in every way they can. I am also a regular volunteer for the Special Olympics in Kansas City. I am a people person to the core! I love being around people of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy being outside, going to the park, reading, photography, and animals!
I am also an animal lover! I am always open for any animal care needs that are out there. I have a 10-year-old boxer/pointer mix that I walk daily. I often dog sit for friends and family members who travel. I can walk/run dogs, dog sit, feed and/or let out dogs during the day, or whatever your pet needs may entail!
