My experience is extensive with working with individuals with intellectual disabilities. I am currently a substitute paraprofessional for the Board of Education (Which I absolutely love). I am a hard working people's person who is empathetic to the needs of others. I have been in this field for over 4 years. From working in a day care to working in a facility that housed and empowered individuals of all backgrounds. There is absolutely no better feeling then knowing your making a difference in someone's life. I am an amazing team player who is great at bringing out the best in people of all ages and walks of life. Compassionate, creative, and dedicated are a few words to describe who I am.
