I also hold my birth-2nd grade teaching license, and my speech teaching license. I've worked as a classroom teacher for 10 years. Currently, I'm working as a speech therapist in an elementary school.
I have experience working with, adapting, and differentiating instruction for students. I have worked with students with cognitive disabilities, speech delays, behavioral/ emotional disabilities, and students diagnosed with autism.
