Growing up, books were a way to escape and live in another world or time. That love of reading, has carried on into my adult life.
I became a teacher after I was encouraged by my daughter's second grade teacher. The decision to choose Special Education was fostered from watching my sister and other children struggle with reading, writing, math, and other studies. I've been fortunate enough to watch my students learn, grow, become confident, self-advocate, and achieve in furthering their education or skills after high school. It is without a doubt the best feeling in the world to see a student years down the road, being a successful adult with families of their own.
I believe that children who are given the right tools, can easily achieve anything. Learning isn't just about getting the right answer - it's about finding the path to the answer.
