I have been a teacher for over 15 years of experience working with special needs students in both home and educational settings. I was a foster parent and I have worked in learning support, autistic support, emotional support and life-skills support classrooms. 


Teaching Philosophy:  

I believe that every student learns. It is my goal and responsibility to find and understand how that occurs individually and apply the competent skill sets to foster that knowledge and then build on it for not only my classroom setting but also for future learning environments.
