My name is Stephanie, and I am currently working for YCCS (Youth Connected Charter Schools); this charter school educates students that are trying to graduate from high school but have been dismissed from a regular high school setting. This is an alternative high school. I have a bachelor's degree in Human Development and a Master of Arts in Cross/Category Special Education. I teach all subjects with a modified curriculum to my student because they are self-contained. I have tutored some of my students in after school programs in reading, language Arts, and mathematics. The style that I prefer teaching is direct instruction. I currently use the Lucy Caulkins balanced literacy style for language arts, and in math I have been teaching Everyday Mathematics to grades 4th and 5th and Math Thematic to middle school students.
The students that I work with have severe learning disabilities and some have mild cognitive delays. I have worked at Easter Seals with all levels of autism. I am looking forward to working with students who need support to be successful in their academic achievements.
