Class Experience

I have a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Post Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behaviour Science (Applied Behaviour Analysis). I am an educator, classroom teacher, online instructor, and curriculum developer. This year I am celebrating my 13th year working with children and young adults!
I have worked as an Elementary School teacher, and as a Registered Behaviour Therapist, and I have been teaching here at Outschool since 2020. I am proud to have delivered my curriculum around the world to over 4000 learners!!! 

“I will teach here and there; I will teach you everywhere” – Dr. Seuss 
“Oh, I love what I do” – Ms. Lu 
Students will receive a practice activity after each class. It is a self-paced worksheet that reinforces the material covered in the course. I recommend working on the worksheet with a family member, as it will create an opportunity to recap topics covered during the lessons. It will also provide the students with an extra chance to practice communication skills and social-emotional learning. Keep an eye out on the classroom page after each class for the material posted. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will not cover any sensitive topics and students do not have to share personal information related to personal social challenges or experiences.
