Degrees and Certifications:
I teach students with intellectual disabilities because it most closely aligns with my belief in the goal of education, which is to prepare students for life beyond school. I feel passionate about supporting my students in gaining independence. I love my student population and enjoy the opportunities I can provide for them in the classroom and wider-school settings. I taught in a special center for students who are medically fragile and/or have severe behavioral difficulties and then I taught at a middle school. The variety of experiences I've had contributes to the curriculum I offer to my students at Talley Street Upper Elementary.
