University of Akron (Severe Behavior Hand)
Bachelor of Education (Other)
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.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
My degree is in Severe Behavioral Handicaps. I taught children with Severe Behavior Handicaps for 7 years. Currently, I'm a tutor in the 7th grade responsible for 24 children and their IEP's. Half of my students on my caseload this year alone have ADHD.
As a teacher for 15 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 work with children in grade 7 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.
I have 15 years teaching experience. Specifically, I taught in grades K-5 for 7 yrs. I have attended training and workshops in relation to the common core. I'm well versed in subjects in each grade level. I taught a self contained K-5 class for three years in Akron. Currently, I do 7th grade but my experience in K-8 is extensive. As far as teaching methods, I'm a specialist with learning strategies to reach children with learning disabilities.
I have 16 years experience in grades K-8. I specialize in strategies for remembering information and in the connections I make with my kids.
I am very qualified to teach children with special needs. I have a license to teach special education, and I'm currently a special education teacher. I have 15 years teaching children with behavior problems, autism, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, learning disabled, other health impairments. Currently, I tutor in the 7th grade. I have 24 children with special needs in my caseload, and I write individual education plans for each.
