Hi! My name is Liz and I am currently a special education teacher at a private school focusing on emotional disabilities. I have experience teaching language arts, social studies, math, and science, as well as, writing and reading comprehension goals. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in American Studies and Elementary Education at Rowan University. After I completed my dual major, I went back to school to complete credits for my Special Education certification. I have my teaching certificates in Special Education and Elementary Education.

I had started working with kids when I was just 16 years old. I was a junior aide and at before/after care center and as a summertime aide as well. I have designed arts and crafts, assisted in homework help, and assisted students during field trips. I have substituted for three different districts as a classroom aide and teacher until I earned a full time position as a classroom aide in an emotional disabilities classroom focusing on oppositional defiant disorder. I continued this position to where I began my first teaching position September 2014 and have been in my current position as a middle school special education teacher.

I am trained in Safety Care and School Wide Positive Behavior Support Systems. I believe all students have the potential to be whatever they want to be in life and all they need is a little confidence in school. I love to read and do arts and crafts when I am not working. I love to explore NJ, as well as go to different festivals across the state. I like learning new facts about American History and NJ geography.

I have taught mathematics at a 4th-6th grade level for the past year to my students. I am very comfortable with teaching subjects involving numeration, equations, geometry, fractions, and other necessary subjects. I prefer to use manipulative especially when teaching fractions and money.

I have a passion for reading. Last year, when I taught language arts, I assisted my students during their reading of The Hunger Games. For the Hunger Games we completed comprehension questions as well as a final project summarizing the qualifications needed to win the Hunger Games.

I have practiced vocabulary using the frayer model where students define the words, find the antonyms and synonyms, create a sentence and a picture displaying the meaning.

I believe in hands on activities that help show us what Science is all about. It is hard to read about Science so I would rather show what Science is all about. I enjoy studying weather and earth processes.

I am a very caring individual who understand in order for students to learn, they need to laugh and have fun while doing it.

ADHD

At the present time I currently work in a school that focuses on emotional disabilities. Most of my students are hindered by ADD/ADHD which causes them to take a few more breaks than a student without. These students will need more hands on and kinesthetic activities than verbal.
