Hello, I am Special Education High School English Teacher, who is deciding to pursue other paths. I worked with students who are in 9th through 12th grade, but I have experience working with students at the middle and elementary school levels. I have a lot of experience working with students with Autism or who are on the spectrum. A lot of my students have various behavioral problems, so I have a lot of patience, but also know strategies in working with these students. Teaching is a lot like care giving in that you are extending a part of yourself to better other people; that is why such an opportunity is so enticing. I currently have some time off and would like to ability to continue to work with, impact and help children and others. I also just finished a long term baby-sitting position, that really made me want to continue Read more with care-giving. In October 2017, I began babysitting a five month old little girl. I fell in love working with her, and realized that should be my career path. It is a year later, and I babysit her when I can. I am CPR certified. I have had a background check just this year, 2018.
