Over the past 25 years I’ve collaborated with numerous special and general education teachers developing curriculum that meets the needs of students with disabilities. My work with school psychologists and other staff to administer academic and achievement assessments has served as a great wealth of working knowledge. These experiences have fostered my desire to create an individualized learning environment that meets the needs of scholars with disabilities. I have clear understanding of the importance of looking at the whole child especially when developing plans to meet the needs of students, their families and assisting educators. In recent years I have worked individually with administrators to help students and teachers optimize their strengths while finding ways to work around obstacles.
