As a student with background in special education I would love to be in a classroom environment to learn the ins and outs of a classroom and to see what works and what doesn't first hand. Strong proficiency with work history in helping young adults with special needs. I take pride in my ability to form relationships with not only my students but also their families. That way we are always on the same page and have the same goals. My philosophy is that everyone learns in their own way & it is my mission to build connections with each and everyone of my students, to fully understand what they need from me to be successful in learning.
