Special Education Teacher
"I am a Special Education teacher and I believe in contributing and making a difference in my student's lives. I am committed to working with my students on their skills, presenting new ideas and finding new ways for them to achieve their goals. I spend time with my students practicing those skills to be sure they get what they need while advocating for my children and focusing on making them feel special."
