About Liz


Bio

My responsibility is to provide instruction that moves students along in their skill set. I empathize with students who can't sit still, are bored easily, or who haven't mastered material despite sitting in a classroom and hearing about it or reading about it. I was that kid who couldn't sit still so I "get it." I was also the bored kid who finished my assignments quickly.

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

My responsibility is to provide instruction that moves students along in their skill set. I empathize with students who can't sit still, are bored easily, or who haven't mastered material despite sitting in a classroom and hearing about it or reading about it. I was that kid who couldn't sit still so I "get it." I was also the bored kid who finished my assignments quickly.

My teaching certification areas include Special Education, middle and high school Social Studies, and middle school English. I have taught in several Maryland counties and have experience in elementary, middle and high schools. I did my off campus undergraduate semester at MIT. i am proud to say I also worked as a foster care advocate.

I am a certified expert witness in special education (DC), experience teaching Soar to Success, experience in all special education settings from general education to hospital

I taught and co- taught Government and US History in Howard County, worked with students on HSA bridge projects, worked for Federal lobbyists preparing Federal Election Commission reports, SGA advisor at high school and elementary levels

Students shouldn't be turned off from learning by bad experiences in school. As Dr. Samuel Betances says, teachers are responsible if students don't learn and teachers should have this quote posted on their classroom wall: "if you didn't learn it, then I didn't teach it." Work with me and I will do everything possible so that you learn.

ADHD

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.
