This is my 10th year working at Kennedy High School. Currently I am a IEP case manager and special education teacher in the SAILS Program (Social, Academic, Independent, Living Skills). Students in the SAILS Program recieve educational services due to needs that result from Autism Spectrum Disorder. I currently teach classes in Social Skills, Transition Skills, Social Studies, and Math.
My educational philosopy is:
- healthy relationships are the foundation of qualify teaching.
- success is individual
- students do well if they can
- all behavior is communication
My job as a teacher is to provide support instrucitonal opportunities in a vareity of social, transition, academic areas in which students develop individual skills and strategies that will provide for individual life long success. Instructional strategies and activities are modified as needed to meet students current social/emotional needs, functional needs and academic achievement level.
In my free time I enjoy: spending time with my family and friends, the outdoors (hiking, canoing, biking), music, movies, reading, painting, DIY project
