I have been teaching in special education for 20 years. I have taught students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities, Autism, and learning disabilities in elementary, middle, and high school. I was trained in the UCLA Young Autism program in 1992 while receiving my Bachelor degree in Special Education. Since that time I have taught at the Nassua Services for the Autistic in Long Island, New York, I also worked for Georgia's Early Intervention Program Babies Can't Wait, and in various special education programs. While teaching students with learning disabilities in middle school, I taught reading as a Read 180 teacher and co-taught classes in reading. I currently teach at the high school level for students with mild, moderate intellectual disabilities as well as those on the autism spectrum.
After nearly 16 years in the classroom, I returned to school and completed my Master's of Special Education through the University of North Dakota (online) in May 2015. I am specialized in autism spectrum disorders. I have a passion for working with students with Autism and their families. It is my hope to help families and their children bridge the gap between home and school through learning how to generalize skills to everyday life. Teaching families the tools to help make their children be as successful as possible in the home and in the community as well. Students with special needs are a unique group of learners and I will modify my teaching methods to your child's needs as I do in the classroom to support their current learning style. I look forward to working with you and your child. I have been teaching in special education for 20 years.
