I have been teaching special education for 8 years and I currently teach a classroom of Kindergarten-2nd grade students. I have a wide range of experiences teaching and caring for children of all ages and ability levels, both in the classroom and home environments. I have babysat/been a nanny for infants up to children in middle school. I have also worked with adults with disabilities. I truly love working with children and helping them to learn and grow! I believe children learn by playing and using their imaginations, so I always engage them in lots of hands-on activities and games. Learning is fun and anything and everything can be a fun learning experience and teachable moment! Some of my favorite activities are: hiking, being outdoors, reading, arts and crafts, playing imaginary games, etc.
