Meet Nizhoni

I have been working for the San Mateo County Office of Education for over 11 years with students who age from kindergarten to 22 years old with a wide level of needs. I am trained in CPR for infants to adults, and I have had to use it in an emergency situation which resulted in saving the person's life. I feel that it is very important for people to know how to do and use CPR efficiently and appropriately not only when working with children, but if needed with one's own family. I have extensive experience working with people who have Autism, ranging in all levels and... more
I have been working for the San Mateo County Office of Education for over 11 years with students who age from kindergarten to 22 years old with a wide level of needs. I am trained in CPR for infants to adults, and I have had to use it in an emergency situation which resulted in saving the person's life. I feel that it is very important for people to know how to do and use CPR efficiently and appropriately not only when working with children, but if needed with one's own family. I have extensive experience working with people who have Autism, ranging in all levels and ages. Over the years I have found that my understanding and care for the students and people I work with is extremely important to me. To know that each individual is unique and incredible unto themselves, and that each person requires their own specific education and level of care. I know how to work with the TEACH model and with Boardmaker. I have been trained in Nonviolent Crisis Prevention Intervention (NCPI). I have been to Epilepsy seminars and have worked with many people who have epilepsy or seizures. I have a high level of experience working with special needs people not only through my work, but in my family. It is a passion of mine to give the best possible care that I can to the people I am working with and their families.
