ADD/ADHD

I have my NJ Teacher of Students with Disabilities certification. I have taught many students of various ages with ADHD, who have succeeded both academically and behaviorally. Finding engaging activities, using short breaks activities, and remaining consistent have been very effective for me with these students in the past.

Aspergers

I have my NJ Teacher of Students with Disabilities certification, and I have worked with students on the autistic spectrum for four years, including students with Asperger's and autism.

Autism

I have my NJ Teacher of Students with Disabilities certification, and I have taught many students grades 3-8 with autism or who were on the autistic spectrum. I'm certified in Applied Behavior Analysis, and I've also used the DIR/Floortime method with my autistic students. I've helped my students improve in both their academics and behaviors.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my NJ Elementary K-5 teaching certification. I have taught Elementary-age students in five different classrooms/schools in the past five five years, after obtaining my certification and degree.

Special Needs

I am certified as a New Jersey Teacher of Students with Disabilities, and I have been teaching students in special education programs and schools for the past five years. The students I've taught have had a wide variety of both cognitive and behavioral disabilities. They have also been between the ages of 7-21 years of age, giving me a wonderful opportunity to work with a wide age range of students. I've taught my students using various methods of teaching, including applied behavior analysis, the DIR/Floortime method, as well as modifying the general education curriculum for my students.

Study Skills

A major area of need for the majority of my students, whose ages ranged from Elementary to high school age, was in the area of study skills. I've used many different methods for helping my students become more independent in this area. These methods are always individualized to the specific student and need, and include using positive behavior motivators, building self-confidence, using visuals, using timers, using graphic organizers, and helping students become better organized in general.
