For the last 2.5 years, I have primarily taught students with autism. I have worked those 2.5 years with the students with autism who have behaviors; I am one of the two behavior rooms. The abilities of these students have varied from nonverbal, blind, intellectual disabled, and language impaired students. Basically, I work with moderate to (currently) students considered to have severe autism.
I have taught different preps since 2009; these preps have been taught in the public school setting and through home instruction. I have taught 8th grade English Language Arts, 8th grade Communication Applications/Public Speaking, Elementary & Exceptional Student Education as young as a 3rd student to 12th grade and two vocational students. I understand the importance of using creativity & experiential education as a means of appealing to each individuals learning style. And I believe that the most important trait every educator must possess is passion for learning.
The discipline of education is a renowned field where I want to dedicate myself, my skills and my time. My enthusiasm for learning, natural interpersonal skills and exceptional understanding of students with autism is why I continue to teach.
