##### About Christina

I have taught as a special education teacher for 5 years. I worked at a center-based program with young adults ages 18-26 focusing on employment and daily living skills. Each day offered a challenge as I was required to help my students reach their potential for being as independent as possible. I have 4 years experience working at a camp for individuals with special needs, 3 years experience working as a camp counselor with elementary aged kids, and 2 years experience student teaching in a middle school resource room, self-contained EI elementary school classroom, 5th grade general education classroom, and secondary transition MoCI classroom.

I enjoy a challenge where student success is the biggest reward. I have the knowledge and skills, but most important, I focus on creating a trusting and positive relationship with my students to encourage success and achievement. With the combined efforts of student motivation and teacher knowledge and skill, success is inevitable.

My undergraduate minor is in elementary education. I have experience as a student teacher and substitute teacher.

My undergraduate major is in psychology-special education. I have completed graduate work in autism (18 credits, earned an autism endorsement). Special education endorsements include cognitively impaired (CI), emotionally impaired (RI), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

I'm looking forward to helping you find success by giving you tools to be as successful as you can.
