My name is Stephanie, and I am currently working for YCCS (Youth Connection 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 tutor students after-school in reading, language arts, and mathematics, science and History. The style that I prefer teaching is direct instruction. For language arts, and in math, I have taught 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.

Thank you,
