Hello and thank you for taking the time to review my profile! It was during my junior year of high school that I first realized that working with children was my passion and in particular, children with special needs. I began volunteering in a sophomore special education classroom and in college served as a Peer Mentor for our Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Program. In my senior year I spent three weeks in Quito, Ecuador volunteering for the Street Children Project. The insights and perspectives I gained are embedded in me still. It was one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. I was then fortunate enough to be hired as an Instructional Assistant at a special education school, Center for Applied Behavioral Instruction, shortly after graduating college. This is where my love and admiration for children with Autism truly flourished and where I learned ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis). I Read more look forward to meeting new people and being asked what I do for work because talking about my field, about the journeys of growth I have been able to watch unfold, fills my life with absolute joy. I worked at CABI for a year and a half and I decided I wanted to pursue a career teaching in early childhood education with a concentration in special education. I worked in the adolescent classroom throughout my time there but have always had the desire to work with ages 3-7. As I pursue my Masters degree and eventually take my MTELs I would love to gain more experience working with the mentioned age group. I hope to find an opportunity to do so and I look forward to (hopefully) meeting you and sharing my passion for children with you and for you! Thank you for your time, Fiona Mwariama
