I've worked with students ages 5-14 who are challenged academically, behaviorally and emotionally and have had great success building relationships with students and parents alike.

I have been a special education teacher for 28 years in a variety of settings including day treatment, district programs and most recently a resource room. I've worked with students ages 5-14 who are challenged academically, behaviorally and emotionally and have had great success building relationships with students and parents alike. I am a highly qualified certified teacher in the state of Maine. I hold endorsements in special education (k-12) and elementary education (k-8). My masters degree is in special education and I have a concentration in literacy.

It is my absolute desire to meet kids where they are at and build a structure that allows the greatest success. This may include a traditional approach to instruction, but most likely will include specialized instruction or alternative methods i.e. animal assisted instruction or aromatherapy, community based instruction.
