About Barbara

I have worked in a variety of special education and general education positions. Each of these has further enhanced my skills when working with students with disabilities. While attending graduate school I worked as an assistant to the Special Education Teacher. This experience was instrumental in developing my understanding the value and importance of the assistant to the success of the classroom.

Upon my completion of my M.Ed I worked as the Head Special Education Teacher in a public school setting. My student populations have ranged from pre-school to seniors in high school. In each environment, behavior management skills were required in order to maintain a positive and productive classroom environment. I thrive in this environment, when the students are able to implement their new behavior skills, they begin to enjoy success often for the first time. To be part of this development is what being a Special Education Teacher is all about.

When offered a position in a non-public school setting in California, I moved to a higher and more intense level of behavior support needs. I worked for the same company in six different locations in five years, because my classroom management provided a strong and structured environment in which the students were able to succeed. The intensity of the instruction increased when the students were maintained in an inclusive environment. One campus was a treatment center for drug dependent students. Working in this environment enabled me to gain knowledge and skills to better serve this population. On another campus the students resided in a lock down facility because the state had sentenced them there as convicted sex offenders. This opportunity provided me with the highest level of behavior instruction, implementing an intense and productive educational environment. While at this location, enrollment in our non-public school increased by 70% as the public school was able to see the success of the students both behaviorally and academically as well as the Riverside County Probation Department, the referring agency.
In addition to being the Special Education Teacher I was the On-Site Administrator maintaining the highest level of management and productivity for the campus. My educational and management experiences enabled me to take on a job that required leadership as well as consistent and productive management skills.

I believe I can be an exceptional addition to your faculty and look forward to hearing from you soon.
