My name is Melissa. I have worked with special needs kids of various ages in social skills settings. I began my career in education while obtaining my Masters in Counseling at Boston College. I so enjoyed working with the special needs children and their families that I chose to become a teacher. I pursued my special education certification at Rivier College while working as a behavioral specialist in Nashua. As I worked, I also pursued certification in emotional/behavioral disorders. I primarily taught special education for elementary aged students from kindergarten to sixth grade. I have done small reading group lessons, math based lessons, spelling lesson as well as some of the social studies and science curricula.
