I have been teaching for 24 years with most of that time being in Special Education. My background was originally in Speech and Hearing Therapy, so I was a Speech Therapist and after a couple years I added an ESL Endorsement because of my background in language acquisition.

After moving to another district, I taught middle school resource Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies for 8 years and Content Mastery for 2 years. I had a new student move in who was visually impaired and a braille reader. Her vision teacher suggested that I go back to school and get my certification for teaching the visually impaired.

My current job found me while I was taking my first classes for my Vision certification and I have been a Certified Teacher of the Visually Impaired for 7 years. I adapt materials in all subject areas for visually impaired students so they may participate in class with their sighted peers.

I love learning even though my own learning in the lower grades was a struggle. Because of this, I understand first hand how children learn in different ways. I hope that I am able to share some strategies that I have learned along the way.

Phonics

I have had training in the Herman Method reading program which not only focuses on phonics but a multisensory approach to teaching reading.

Sewing

I have been sewing since I was 9 years old after I had been enrolled in a sewing class at the Singer store in my neighborhood. Since that time, I have made my own clothing, my daughter's clothing, home decor - pillows, curtains, blankets, crib sheets, pot holders, lunch bags, etc.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Speech and Hearing Therapy, an ESL endorsement and a certification in Visual Impairment. I read and write Braille on a daily basis and am familiar with the unique needs of the student with visual impairments. Over the course of my 24 years in education, I have taught Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, and English in a looped 7th and 8th grade class. My Social Studies class involved many hands on activities including finding well-known and little-known cities and towns on a Texas map using the legend and grid system.

Study Skills

In addition to having taught for 24 years, I managed my school district's Homework Lab. The Homework Lab was an after-school program where students had supervised care and tutoring in every subject area. The failure rate dramatically dropped as a direct result of this program. Study skills, organization and subject specific tutoring was provided to each student on an as-needed basis.
