My responsibility is to provide instruction that moves students along in their skill set.

My teaching certification areas include Special Education, middle and high school Social Studies, and middle school English.

I have been a special education resource teacher assisting students with ADHD (among other disabilities) in four separate Maryland counties. I read literature and research about educational supports for students with ADHD. I have ADHD myself and have provided staff training to peers on instructing students with ADHD and what it feels like from the student's perspective to sit in class with ADHD.
