Description

Class Experience

I have been teaching for more than 15 years, and I have a Master's degree in education. Coursework in understanding and teaching exceptional students, including students with ADHD, was required to complete this degree. 

I have also had many students with ADHD in my classes. In my years of teaching, I became known for my approach and success with students who struggled with their ADHD. Whether it was my high-energy teaching style or just the soft spot I have for these students, they have seemed to excel in my class.

Recently I have become more interested in this topic. After some research, I gave a presentation on this subject matter to the staff in my home school assistance program. It was my goal to inform and also to encourage teachers to look at students with ADHD through the positive lens that they deserve to be seen in. 

Shortly after this, I created and offered a two classes on Outschool called "ADHD Superpowers: The Hidden Advantages of ADHD" and "The Hidden Advantages of ADHD (for Teens) so that students could learn about all the good that can come of their ADHD.  Many students have taken these classes since their creation and they continue to be my most popular classes. Their unanticipated success inspired opened my eyes to the need for these students to have a space where they can be their most authentic selves and connect with other like-minded students, and thus my ADHD clubs were born!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
