I have been working as a Para Professional with Mild/Moderate Special Education students for 6 yrs with Douglas County School District. I have taken many extra classes within the district on Behavioral disciplines, dealing with ADHD/ADD and Autism. I have also specialized in Writing,Reading and Math within the elementary school grades. I love to work with these kiddos mainly because I care and want them to succeed in life. Most of the time these children just need some extra time and someone to listen, and talk in a manner they can understand. I find that they do fine in the classroom, but most of the time they only "hear" half of what the teacher says, because they are slow at processing and the teacher at normal speed of talking, it is too fast for these children. I have a resume of many classes the district has offered to keep up with the new Math, and technology. I look forward to working with the kids at their pace. I'm a widow and have nothing but time on my hands, time for your children.
