I am a certified teacher in elementary education and special education. I am also Highly Qualified in Language Arts for grades 5-8. Currently, I am a special ed case manager who works with students who have ADHD, Learning Disabilities, autism and anxiety issues. I am a 8th grade teacher and I work everyday with various programs and techniques to be able to reach students who are multiple grade levels behind in reading, math and writing.
I am highly qualified in the area of Language Arts. I am very familiar with many programs that can be used for things such as phonics, fluency and comprehension as well as writing.
Previously, to becoming a special education teacher I was an elementary school teacher. I taught fifth grade, kindergarten and preschool. I also tutored beginning reading and math for many years.
Currently, I am a special education teacher. On a daily basis I work with students who have a wide variety of disabilities ranging from ADHD to autism. The key is remembering that every student is different and finding the balance of techniques that will work for them.
