About Christa

I graduated this past May with my Master's Degree in Special Education. I have passed 4 NYS teaching certification tests and have one more to go before I am a certified teacher. I currently work as a 1:1 aide in a local Middle School and have done so for several years. I have also taken care of a student who has Autism after school. I would practice daily life skills and help him with homeowork.

I always knew I wanted to teach but as i got older and had experience working with children of various needa with disabilities I fell in love and decided to stick with Special Education. It is amazing to see how much students can improve with some extra time and attention. Everybody learns differently and I enjoy trying differebt methods until I find the right method for each individual student!


I helped teaxh Elementary Math during my student teaching and help with a sixth grade math classroom every school day. I know a lot of parents struggle with the new common core math but I have learned which websites to reference and have daily experience with it.

I have worked with students with special needs for many years now. I have worked with kids aged 3-12. I also went to graduate school for special education and graduated with high honors. I also have family members with special needs so I know how important it is to have kind,understanding, patient, encouraging adults like myself to work with children.

I would love to help students succeed and promise to push both of us to do our best!
