Every child needs a structured, safe, and caring environment in which to learn to reach his/her fullest potential. I provide this environment by building a positive relationship and being prepared and organized for every lesson. It is also important to provide opportunities for learning through self-discovery rather than being the primary source of information. Creating this environment is key to being an effective teacher.
In 2003, I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in special education at the University of North Florida. Since then, I have taught in the special education classroom. I also have experience tutoring general education students K-12, in various subject areas.
I have seven years of teaching experience in the special education classroom. I designed and implemented the community based instruction program at the high school level. I also taught reading and English to junior high students with special needs.
During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
