About Shirley

I am am enthusiastic, energetic and creative teacher who has been working in the school system for 17 years. I have a master's degree in clinical psychology I worked in the field of neuropsychology and child psychology for 3 years before going back to school for my teaching degree. I have taught struggling student as well as gifted students. Most recently, I taught kindergarten children with Autism. I was nominated as teacher of the year several times and received the honor of voted teacher of the year twice.

I have a strong background in not only teaching children, but building lasting, positive relationships with children and their parents. While working as a Neuropsychologist Associate, I performed play therapy with children with various conditions and helped family members develop behavior management skills to improve behavior concerns. I am a well rounded, intelligent and creative person that loves children and teaching.

I have taught all subjects- Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies and love the outdoors so that children can get the physical activity they need to thrive mentally and physically. I have taken several classes towards my Reading Specialist degree and this is definitely an area of strength.

I have 17 years experience in teaching children with learning disabilities, Autism, Asperger's, Developmental Delay and other disabilities. In addition, I have 3 years experience in neuropsycholgical testing and and 20 years experience educational assessment to monitor progress.
