I have been teaching in special education for over 15 years, I graduated from Gettysburg College with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and George Washington University with a Master of the Arts in Special Education for students with Emotional and Behavioral Differences and Early Childhood Special Education. I taught for four years in Fairfax County public schools and had since worked in Early Intervention. I enjoy making learning enjoyable for the learner and I try to make things most hands on as possible (at least in the early stages when children are learning new concepts) as possible. In the past both when learning myself or when teaching others, I have had students use videos games as a start of a point to research history projects, plumbing as was to study geometry and using giant pieces of graph papers write out large math problems (even when using a calculator). I believe that all children can learn and should enjoy learning I try to show them how learning can be fun and how they learn best themselves. Outside of work and in my spare time, I read, make soap, and spend time with my family.
