About Penny

I am a certified Special Education Teacher with certification in English and Science. I work well with students with learning disabilities and poor attention spans. I currently teach in a middle school setting and teach both remedial math and communication arts. I have taught for 20 years in the school setting and for ten years, I taught children with severe disabilities in a private school setting. I have spent the last ten in a public school setting in a middle school.
