Hello and thank you for finding me. I have been a special education teacher for 15 years. I have been blessed exponentially. Working in wonderful districts throughout northeast Ohio and with devoted staffs led me to my current day position in Massillon where I have been for 9 years. I have worked with many different types of children including children with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD,other heath impairments, behavior problems and cerebral palsy. I have taught grades k-12 and I'm well versed in the (current) Common Core. I stay current in new strategies and ways to connect with kids. My current position is a Small Group Teacher (tutor) in the 7th grade.

My greatest blessing in life has been as mom to four wonderful children. My youngest is now a junior in high school. Three of my kids do have orthopedic impairments. I believe that this has allowed me to have a greater understanding and connection with the needs of children and the issues of parents. Growing up, my kids and I didn't do many baseball try-outs or gymnastics practices. We were recovering from the latest surgery. These experiences have made my children and I closer and stronger. (I have tough kids!) I relate well with children who have learning difficulties, health concerns or other issues which keep them from school. I connect well with parents because,in many cases, I was them. I'm grateful to God for allowing me the opportunity to become the strong person I am today.

Common Core

As a teacher for 18 years, I have seen the "Common Core" shift and change nearly every year. Anyone in education knows changes come before the ink even dries. I'm working with young adults in grade 9 this year and have been flooded with "Common Core" or the latest standards. I have a list of the standards and when writing my IEP's, refer to them. My students have goals aligned with them.

As far as teaching methods, I'm a specialist with learning strategies to reach children with learning disabilities.

Hello I'm an intervention specialist with 18 years experience working with children learning to read to those enjoying a high interest novel. I try to pass my love of books on to every child I teach; often buying two books in order to read and later discuss the novel with an interested student. I have also encouraged and enlisted every strategy I have up my sleeves in order to facilitate learning in kids who struggle, as many do. I'm good at what I do and am blessed to be doing it. Thank you
