Description

Class Experience

I began my teaching career as a substitute teacher in special education in 1997 as I was attending UCF (University of Central Florida) in Orlando, FL and earned my MA Degree in various exceptionalities.  I added two additional Certifications: RESOL (reading and language arts) grades K-12.  I am currently waiting for my braille certificate from UTN (North Technical University of Ecuador).
**I am very proud to be an Outschool employee for many years.** I taught various grade levels in public and private schools from age 4 years old up into university with our own girls and boys in gifted programs and magnet schools. I've earned "Highly Effective" in all areas and love teaching.  

Over the years, I have volunteered for international online students of braille. I pride myself on searching for ways to accommodate and adjust as needed to learner styles.  I enjoy assisting families in their education decisions.  I am special needs sensitive.  
Interesting facts about our family: we have a Bichon Frise dog named Cleopatra, named after the Egyptian queen. We enjoy cross-walking and watching movies in our backyard home theatre  :)  
Practice the letters learned in class and search for words with those letters. 
Students will need crepe paper of bright colors: blue, yellow, red, green, orange, and purple, play-doh (or large pom-poms) and an egg carton cut down to just 6 spaces (situated as 2 columns across, 3 spaces down).
Informal assessment as the child progresses with their knowledge of letters. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Since the class is open to blind or low-vision students, parents must be present to guide their children through the lesson.
