I have instructed and mentored these populations for more than ten years: 4 years as an SDC Teacher and 4 years as an Employment Training Specialist working with Adults with Disabilities.
I have 3.5 years of experience working and communicating with several individuals with this Syndrome and have an understanding of their compulsive verbalizations and general thought patterns.
I have 4 years of instructional experience and 1 year direct 1:1 experience with individuals with this disability. I comprehend and appreciate the need for structure and repetition while understanding this population's typical desire for isolation.
I would like to request Certification for Elementary (K-6th). I received my BA at California State University in San Marcos, California, and hold a Professional Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with an English Supplementary and a Crosscultural, Language & Academic Development Emphasis.
I have implemented phonics into reading and writing instruction for more than a decade as an aid to teach learners about the orthographic code of language and the relations of spelling patterns to sound patterns.
I taught students with mild-to-moderate disabilities in a Special Day Class environment for four years (8/99-6/04), and have been training, coaching, counseling, mentoring and advocating for adults with disabilities within their work environments for nearly four years (8/07-Present) both individually and in groups.
I absolutely enjoy serving populations with developmental disabilities and/or other challenges, and I believe that they benefit from my acceptance and experience.
