Meet Christina

When I started my graduate degree in 2006 for elementary education, I was also substituting, and after my first special needs class, I knew that this is the area in which I wanted to teach. Therefore, in seven years, I had two temporary jobs, one a year long and one for half of the year, in classes with many disabled children. I have taught as a substitute for special needs more than 60% of the time for this special group. In addition, I had the pleasure to assist a 17-year-old with Autism and two children with ADHD in my summer tutoring job this past year. Each and... more
When I started my graduate degree in 2006 for elementary education, I was also substituting, and after my first special needs class, I knew that this is the area in which I wanted to teach. Therefore, in seven years, I had two temporary jobs, one a year long and one for half of the year, in classes with many disabled children. I have taught as a substitute for special needs more than 60% of the time for this special group. In addition, I had the pleasure to assist a 17-year-old with Autism and two children with ADHD in my summer tutoring job this past year. Each and everyone of these children always makes me smile and they always hold a place in my heart. Children with special needs, give so much more back to me than I can give to them. They are so grateful for everything you do for them. They are all learners, but I am responsible as a special education teacher to find out what makes them learn. Therefore, I studied to get a special education endorsement on my license and have never turned back. I have experience with children who have moderate Autism, mild Autism, Asperger's, Down Syndrome, emotional disorders, Cerebral Palsy, ADD and ADHD. Also, I have experience with children with traumatic brain injuries, hearing impairments, sight impairments, and Asthma. I love everyone of my students and find a way to bond with each in some way.

Janet P. says:
Christina is a supreme special education teacher. My grandson, living with the challenges of ADHD and auditory processing, struggled all the way through school. I felt he missed out on so many fundamentals and he is bright so I wanted enrichment for him also. Last summer and fall I hired Christina to come to my home to tutor him, and she worked collaboratively with me, asking me what kinds of subjects and skills... More
