Description

Group Experience

My learning goals for your student:

-Social/Emotional Development (helping with the ability to adjust to new settings, learning respect for themselves and others, following simple rules and directions, and helping recognize the feelings of others)

-Cognitive Development (observes and participates in discussions, understands cause and effects, applies knowledge learned to a new situation)

-Language Development (expresses themselves, comprehends conversations and participates back, answers and asks questions)
I am a neurodivergent Teacher who has a passion for helping others with my expertise and life experience. I am able to relate to my students and guide them through learning.  I allow students to be who they are without ANY fear of judgement!  All of my clubs and groups are relaxed, creating a comfortable and safe environment for self expression.

I have taught my homeschooled children for over 10 years, from elementary age through high school academic subjects/curriculum. I have a background teaching autistic children, those with ADHD, developmental and intellectual disabilities, social anxiety, mental disorders, and physical disabilities for 10 years. I create curriculum and plan lessons around my student’s specific academic needs. Each child learns differently and at their own pace.  It takes a dedicated teacher to pinpoint what type of learner a student is (visual, kinesthetic, auditory, or logical). By learning what different styles my students learned best in, I created a unique lesson plan that helped them reach their full potential. 

I have over 20 years of experience working directly with youth in my community. I have volunteered for over 8 years with the special needs community and am currently involved with several groups in my area. As a current Certified Coach with the Special Olympics organization, I help student-athletes, ages 8 and above, reach their full potential on and off the field. I teach them to correctly verbalize their frustrations, communicate productively with teammates, develop lasting friendships, and self-advocate. These actions help the athletes have overall better sportsmanship and be a better teammate.

I am currently studying Child Psychology, which gives me better insight into developing minds. I have a great passion for helping students with their socio-emotional needs.
