Hi, I’m Jessica! Thanks for visiting my profile! I have been working as a certified Special Education teacher in Los Angeles for the past ten years. Specifically, I teach students who are blind and visually impaired in a resource room setting at the elementary level. During the school day, I focus on reading instruction, language arts, math (Engage New York), assessing areas of strengths and needs, common core testing strategies, Braille instruction, and technology skills. I have been specifically trained to teach English Language Learners, struggling readers, and students with special needs (ASD, ADHD, etc). After ten years with the same school district, I have experience with mainstreaming students into the general education classroom and providing both accommodations and modifications, as appropriate.

In recent years, I have provided after school services to struggling students who need additional support in order to make progress within the general education classroom. During lessons, I assess areas of need and determine which foundational skills need to be focused on. The students that I work with are falling just short of where they need to be, and as a team, I am able to develop an easy to follow plan that will provide the support needed to find success in the classroom. Feel free to message me with any questions.
