My classroom at University Elementary encourages students to work to their highest potential by reinforcing the positive aspects of each individual learner. Each student works towards their individual goals and objectives through large and small group instruction and one on one assistance. The classroom uses a variety of learning approaches that include hands on, visual, auditory, and sensory techniques to encourage learning.

I have a wide range of educational experience which includes; Bachelorís Degree in Elementary Education, a Masterís Degree in Severe/Profound Special Education, 8 yearsí experience as a Special Education teacher in Seattle Public Schools, an outdoor recreation counselor for people with disabilities, a respite provider for people with disabilities for DDD, and in home behavior intervention specialist for DDD. Through these experiences I have gained the knowledge and resources to work with families of children with disabilities in a variety of situation and meet their individual needs.
