I have worked for several years within the Special Education department for William S. Hart Union High School District, as an instructional assistant. Before coming to California, I worked with the Ferndale Public School District in Ferndale, Michigan, where I have held many positions. I have been a media specialist, a one-on-one instructional assistant, a technologist, a science coordinator and a substitute teacher for all grades from Pre-K to Adult Education. I have had informal training with a multi-sensory method for teaching students with dyslexia how to process the written language called Orton-Gillingham. I hold a Master's Degree in special education, a Bachelors Degree in interdisciplinary studies, and an Associates Degree in instructional technology.
I have a child who has dyslexia so I not only know how to help these students manipulate the brain in order to read, I also have an idea how parents feel who are faced with this disorder in their children. I have also worked with students who have many special needs. I have been a adaptive skills trainer and a behaviorist for a local company who work with students who are autistic.
Through my schooling and teaching experiences I have learned that students with ADD and ADHD learn differently from other students. I have found that a multi-sensory approach to teaching allows the student to stay on task for longer periods of time. Modifying the lesson will allow the students to have frequent breaks to help with their attention spans. I have worked for several years within the Special Education department for William S. Hart Union High School District, as an instructional assistant.
I have worked with students with autism for six years through the William S. Hart Union School District. I have worked as a behaviorist for children and adolescents for the last four years. I am four classes away from my Master's in Special Education and four classes away from my credentials.
