About Karen


Bio

I've been in education for 23 years. I've taught kindergarten, ESL both elementary through middle school age kids. I now am a vision teacher. We work with low vision academic student and or special needs students babies to seniors. It's a very diverse population. I enjoy it and it very rewarding. I would say I'm specifically good at helping those that struggle with reading.

I've been in education for 23 years. I've taught kindergarten, ESL both elementary through middle school age kids. I now am a vision teacher. We work with low vision academic student and or special needs students babies to seniors. It's a very diverse population. I enjoy it and it very rewarding. I would say I'm specifically good at helping those that struggle with reading.

I have experience in working with special needs students. In addition I remember reading being a challenge for me as a kid. I felt I was rescued by a really great teacher in 2nd grade who cared about me.

I am a certified vision teacher. My specialization was reading and early childhood.

I'm special ed certified and that is a great deal of the population I work with on my current job.

I would love to help your child whose struggling if at all possible. I know it can be frustrating to see your child struggle.

Special Needs

I have my certificate for Special education K-12 grade. I have worked with special needs students for 23 years. As a teacher of the visually impaired we work with a variety of students. Many of our students are multi impaired as well as visually impaired. I have been trained to accommodate instruction for these students, so that they are successful with their individual goals that have been developed for them. As a VI and sped teacher we are taught how to work on expanded core curriculum and work on real world skills as well. These may be social skills. It may be learning to order food at a restaurant, etc. When working with special needs it is important to be ready to affectively address their individual concerns and needs.
