Like many special education teachers, I started teaching because of a personal connection with someone (and, later, many people) with special needs. Over the years of teaching, I found myself drawn to the field of autism and early learning, so it truly is an honor that I have the opportunity to marry these two passions in my current work. One of my favorite things about the field of autism is the amount of research that has been done (and has yet to be done) to provide effective tools for learning and self-management to children with autism. There is so much out there! My goal is to provide my students with whatever they need to be successful, and I am so grateful to the DonorsChoose community for supporting this goal and my classroom!
