I have an master's degree in education (MAED/SpEd) with a concentration in special education and special needs advocacy. I currently teach multiple subjects (math, science, and literacy skills) in a special needs classroom. The main subjects that I provide tutoring and instruction for are in science, literacy skills (inclusive of reading, writing, and communications goals) and math oriented classroom. I have provided 1:1 instruction for students with behavioral, emotional, and developmental delays in the SpEd classrooms.
I am extremely familiar with constructing age and grade-level appropriate lesson and unit plans that are fun AND purposeful. I am capable of reading through goals and objectives of an IEP to determine which areas to tutor in and can provide testing for specific subject matter to determine grade level.
I genuinely enjoy working with students with special education needs, and this is one of the main reasons that I seek employment within this field. The time and patience necessary to help a child grow and learn are attributes that I pride myself on possessing. Making a difference in their daily lives and helping to provide educational opportunities are my main priorities. I am a compassionate, patient, and skilled professional that seeks a position where I can assist in such avenues of education, allowing me to help the students with special needs gain access to additional resources.
