About Lisa

I hold a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and an MS in Special Education. I am certified to teach Early Childhood to 12th grade Special Education. I currently teach preschool speech-language groups in a public school. In addition, I am a Hanen Certfied Learning Language and Loving It! instructor and I provide language and literacy training to teachers in the county for which I work. Past experiences also include teaching preschool special education classes, which consisted of students with various disabilities and skills (Autism, DD, Health Impairments, Speech-Language Delays). I have assisted young students in obtaining skills in early literacy, mathematics, pre-vocational, and fine and gross motor skills. I have created and implemented behavior plans and schedules to assist students and families in creating structure and routine within their homes. I utilize research-based interventions, including modeling, direct instruction, wait time, differentiated instruction, multi-modal communication systems, constant time delay, and higher order questioning to improve skills in language, literacy, math, social-emotional, and behavior. I have a passion for special education and I love seeing my students learn and grow! I hold a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and an MS in Special Education.
