My name is Bernadette and I have been involved with special education since 2001. I started substitute teaching and was introduced to the world of special education. I was so inspired I started a teaching credential program in special education at National University. I presently hold a Mild/Moderate Education Specialist Credential. I already had earned a BA from Cal State San Marcos in Social Science with a Minor in History.

I hold certification in EL, English Language Learner. My credential program prepared me for different teaching techniques for special needs students.
