About Roberta

I specialize in modifying curriculum and use of diverse strategies to meet the needs of persons with different abilities (I do not care for the terms' disabled or handicapped). I have taught a wide spectrum of different abilities including the following; deaf-blind, non-ambulatory autism, Ausberger, behaviorally challenged, intellectually challenged, medically fragile, learning disabled and multiply handicapped.

One of my students who has Down Syndrome is now running her own baking business due to my abilities to modify instructions and implement strategies for her particular skills as she has learned to grind wheat, blend ingredients, bake, package and deliver her bread. I also taught her how to use a spreadsheet to keep track of her orders. Another student of mine who has Autism has reduced his self-stemming and compulsive behavior after I implemented a curriculum designed to stimulate his 'working memory'.

I have a Masters Degree in Special Education and have taught For Special School District of St. Louis County for 28 years I also hold a lifetime certification in Learning Disabled, Educable Mentally Retarded and Emotional Disturbance. I also hold certification in the state of Nevada in Elementary Education. I have over thirty years of special education experience and excel in my skills. I love each and every one of my students whom often teach me more than I teach them.
