I have worked with special needs students who indeed had ADD/ADHD for over my professional time span. My school had a 64% special needs out of about 500 students.
Although they can be a challenge, the reward for student and teacher is worth so much of a reward.
I have my BSN from TSC. While st TSC I gave supplemental instruction to college students. I did Human A&P,I&II, Intro to Biology, Nursing I, and study skills. I was a school nurse/instructor for 20 years.
I currently work per diem teaching home health care students to become certified with the state of New Jersey. I love teaching in the health care field.
I feel through 20 years in education I can tutor k-6th grade. I have a great deal of patience after working with special need students. I truly enjoy young children, especially when they light up after an accomplishment! They're so eager to learn. Young students need to have an educator who makes education fun yet knowledgeable too.
I have 20 years as a school nurse/instructor. I would like to think that my award given by the governor 6/09 for teacher of the year for my school should speak for itself. Currently PRN teaching home health aides to become certified in the state of New Jersy.
The health field is where I feel my passion and would like to help in any way I can to students in need of help..
I have worked for 20 years as as school nurse/instructor. I did supplemental instruction at Trenton State College in nursing, intro. to biology, human A&P, and study skills.
I have worked for 20 years as a school/nurse instructor. My population of special needs was around 64% out of about 500 students. As time progressed over the years I even saw regular students,they too had many psychological issues.
When I have dealt with psychological concerns one has to be a good listener. I can only say that my peers felt I should have been the school psychologist. I worked hand in hand with our social worker and guidance counselor. I found psychology to be very interesting.
I worked for 18 years with special needs students. A lot of patience was needed. Some people are visual learners, along with sight reading. One must also remember that not all of us read at the same speed or understanding of various subjects.
Reading is so important. It takes practice and patience.
I have worked with the special needs population for the past 18 years in a public technical school. Some were visual learners while others were hands on. Their handicaps ranged from Aspergers, autism,dyslexia, communication disability, reading comprehension disabilities, emotionally disturbed and those who had physical handicaps.
I taught study skills for college students. It incorporated taking notes, rewriting notes, how to use the text (i.e. read end of chapter ?'s before starting to read the chapter), and using the margin of text book to mark an area you either think is important or you will have to read again. Sitting in the front of the class helps concentration. If a study guide is available, buy it and use it. I can help teach you the use of the highlighter, and how not to use it on the whole page. I hope this shows you about study skills.
I taught study skilla also known as supplemental instruction for Trenton State College. I did this for Human AP I&II, Intro to Biology, and Nursing I. We did notetaking skills, study skills, how to review for a test, and how to use the text as explained above. I might add these were listed as difficult courses, hard to pass for the students who were part of my class. After the stats were done the letter grade went up one grade for these students. It was viewed by my supervisor as successful.
Being a nurse for 20 years has prepared me with a lot of knowledge. Testing for any sort of nursing preparation can be so overwhelming. To get over this, I feel one needs to feel confident, not doubtful. Studying is paramount but to feel relaxed is so important. I've passed for the WyzAnt nursing exam and Nclex, and related subjects.
