Professional Summary

Certified Texas Educator with 6.5 years of teaching experience in Early Childhood Special Education where I provided early interventions to students aged 3-6. Highly qualified professional who specializes in adaptive curriculum, behavior management and student motivation and engagement. My teaching philosophy focuses on whole child development as I recognize the importance of social-emotional, physical, creative, and cognitive capabilities being deeply intertwined in the well-being, growth, and learning of every child. As an educator, I believe it is my job to recognize and acknowledge each child’s unique differences while simultaneously nurturing their creative abilities and talents. It is important to me that my students not only develop strong interpersonal skills, independence, and self-confidence before they leave my classroom, but, that I inspire a love and desire for lifelong learning.
