I have been teaching Special Education since the year 2000. I have a BA in Elementary Art Education and a MA in Special Education and three credentials: Mild/Moderate Education Specialist, Moderate/Severe Education Specialist, and a CLAD which allows me to teach English Learners. I have taught Pre-K up to 6th grade so far. I love to incorporate the Arts into all my lessons. Every student comes to me with a blank slate, even those who had reputations. I teach Special Education because I was in Special Education, myself, and understand the struggle! Never give up!
