I am a well-rounded and experienced special educator. I actively work diligently to meet the needs of my students in all academic, social, behavioral, and community based needs. I advocate for both parents and students.
I was the 1999 Rookie teacher of the year for all of Santa Rosa County under the leadership of Bennett Russell and Bambi Lockman.,
I began a program in inner-city Minneapolis for students to start a coffee business and deliver coffee in our school as well as other locations around the district. We named it "Don't Spill the Beans" Students who were non-verbal by years end could take or deliver orders and verbally state amount of order or change.
I was asked to act as Temple Grandin's guide for two consecutive year's as she was guest speaking in Minneapolis for ASD conference.
I worked in a self-contained ASD unit for students on all areas of the spectrum. I worked on new learning techniques such as tennis vocabulary, golf math, and quick fire quiz of the day. On Fridays, I cooked with the classroom to work on life skills. I implemented various ASD best practices. I participated in all school-wide activities with my students. I managed support staff. I wrote IEP's, behavioral plans and reports. I supported families and their children in all areas of need in the world of ASD.
I specialized in writing IEP goals and objectives. I took many classes in the field of EH at the time. I focused on behavioral modification, management and planning. I also became certified in the State as an LD teacher. I enjoyed my time at UWF and its learning experiences and how it prepared me for what I truly wanted to do further on in my career.
