I was a Special Ed teacher for 30 years in Tempe. I loved working with the students and seeing their accomplishments. I worked with all levels of Special Ed and enjoyed all of them. I also went on the Tempe Sister City Exchange to Germany and enjoyed that also. About ten years ago I won the International Teacher Exchange award and was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Australia and teach one year in their Special Ed School. It was a truly rewarding experience. Besides the teaching experience, it was wonderful to truly be able to live with the Australians.
I use a variety of teaching methods and of course follow the I.E.P. recommendations. I feel finding the method of teaching that engages the child is like being a parent and finding the perfect motivation for each child as it will certainly vary with each child.
Teaching has been very rewarding for me and now that I have been retired a few years I find that I truly miss the interaction with the students. It would be my privilege to tutor your child.
