I have nine years experience teaching elementary age students in all subject areas. For eight of those years, I worked as a special education teacher to students with learning disabilities as well as students with autism spectrum disorder. I have experience using the Wilson Reading Program as well as Recipe for Reading to help students with dyslexia learn to read. I have also developed techniques to help students who struggle with reading comprehension.

Before I became a certified teacher, I worked as a tutor at local elementary schools using the Words Their Way program to help students develop strong reading skills. I also worked as a behavior therapist for children with autism spectrum disorder while earning my degree. I look forward to using my extensive and varied experience to help students excel as learners.

As a special education teacher of students in grades K-6, I have worked with the Common Core State Standards in all grade levels. I have designed and differentiated projects to meet the needs of all learners. I have written curriculum based on the Common Core State Standards.

I have over nine years of experience working with students with special needs. I have used a variety of methods to teach students with dyslexia necessary phonics skills.
