I love teaching children and seeing their eyes sparkle when they learn. I encourage all of my students to read because this is something they will need to use all of their lives! Patience is a virtue and I have a lot of it!

ADHD

I am qualified to teach ADD/ADHD students due to the fact that they have been in my classrooms for over a period of many years. I also have a degree in special education so it would also make me qualified for teaching these students as well as those with Aspergers and anything else that would fall under the umbrella of special education. I have at least 5-7 students in my classroom presently that have ADHD.
