I am currently a special education teacher in the Janesville School District. I am certified Cross Categorical and serve as a case manager to all types of students. I have experience with Intellectual Disabilities, Learning Disabilities and Emotional/Behavior Disorders.
I enjoy working with kids who need to find different strategies to overcome their barriers. All children have the capability to learn new skills. It always involves looking at their strengths and finding ways around the barriers they are experiencing.

I have experience with different math curriculums including Everyday Math and My Math. I provide accommodations and strategies on a daily basis to help kids master basic math skills.

One of the focuses in my department is using technology to enhance students with disabilities writing. I use chrome extensions on a daily basis to encourage children to increase their written output and move through the writing and editing process more effectively.

I also worked with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project with children that were 3 years old to school age. I am able to modify curriculum to meet the needs of students with Autism, and Aspergers. I am able to find a way to teach these students subjects that reinforce their interests and are engaging.

I am willing to work with all types of students and am able to travel to meet students if needed.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

ADD/ADHD is again a global term for students that may not have developed executive functioning skills and are not succeeding in school. They may need direct instruction on how to develop skills in these areas to be successful. Finding strategies that work with these students strengths is the main priority.

I worked with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project for several years and learned Applied behavioral Analysis techniques to use with students on the spectrum.

Dyslexia

In my master's program I was taught strategies that address dysgraphia and dyscalculia. I understand that dyslexia is a term that can encompass many types of learning barriers. It is important to teach strategies that help these students overcome the barriers and work with their strengths and that may involve the use of technology.
