Class Experience

I have taught children and young people with special needs for over 20 years. When I taught music in public school, I had a special class for learners who were severely and profoundly disabled. In my undergraduate and master's level education classes, I have had extensive training in differentiating instruction for learners with intellectual, behavioral, and physical disabilities. For many years, I have volunteered at Special Olympics; I love it! I especially enjoyed volunteering in a Sunday school class for children with special needs. I have worked with children with severe autism, Down's syndrome, Williams Syndrome, FASD, and a variety of other developmental challenges. 
Supplies: “Snowball” fight: White wadded paper, wadded tissue paper, Poly-fil, cotton balls, or large pom poms for “snowballs” . . . anything white and lightweight that will not damage your device! Snowman mask: 1) Hat Printed template (posted in classroom) Black construction paper or cardstock 1 piece of colored construction paper or cardstock (your choice of color - not black) Snowflake stickers OR cotton balls to decorate snowman hat 2) Face Plain white paper plate (any kind, but the flatter the better) 3) Handle Large or jumbo craft stick OR paint stir stick OR ruler OR plastic knife OR empty paper towel roll Basic supplies: Glue stick Tape (any kind)

30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I encourage parents to be nearby for students who need help with the craft (cutting, gluing, taping, etc.).
