My experience as a special education teacher and department leader has permitted me to become, not only knowledgeable, but also passionate, about Special Education Law, instruction design, both individual and small group, which parallels the general education curriculum, and appropriate IEP implementation.
I have taught elementary school over the summer months, and have spent a substantial amount of time in classrooms of all levels as a special education department leader, grant supervisor, mentor teacher, and summer school district coordinator. I have received “Highly Effective” evaluations as a teacher, as well as for the various other positions I have filled.
I also coach the volleyball team, the Cross-Country team, and the Track team. I am also a member of the Disability Awareness Coalition and provide supervision for after school activities and sporting events. In addition, I arrange, supervise, and report data for Saturday School sessions.
