Hi everyone, I have been teaching and conducting research in applied areas of psychology for several years. In addition, I have been teaching web productivity applications and basic programming to children and adults since the age of fourteen. As a recent graduate of Michigan State University in the College of Education, I am highly versed in the latest teaching methods to reach and teach students of all abilities. My specialization for my doctoral degree was Special Education, and although I am most experienced with adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, I am able to work with students with disabilities. My teaching has been so highly regarded that I received an award for my teaching in Cultural Diversity and Minority Concerns. Education has always given me the ability to do and to empower not only myself but all my students to foster compassion, dignity and personal fulfillment. I value teaching highly and I hope I have the opportunity to work with you. Do not hesitate to contact me - I will let you know if I can help ... and if I can, you and/or your child will be satisfied.
My Bachelor's degree is in Computer Science. I have taught computer science for 4 years at the K-12 level and I taught this course for the past year to all students enrolled in the social and behavioral sciences department at my school.
I have more than 20 years experience with Microsoft Publisher. I have used every resource on Microsoft Publisher to design pamphlets, menus, flyers personally and for universities and organizations.
My dissertation expressly focused on analyzing the discourse of a science teacher in a middle school inclusive classroom. How do teachers talk to students with special needs? Is their talk enabling these students to succeed or disabling them to the point where they refuse to participate in the classroom? In addition, I have conducted research on assistive technology locally and abroad, and I have worked with students with emotional and behavioral disorders for more than 5 years. I utilize critical pedagogy and a psycho-social perspective in my teaching. My expertise lies not only in teaching students with special needs with the best resources, but also emphasizing their strengths and capabilities so they realize they are as productive and exceptional as their non-disabled peers.
