         I love teaching at Central Avenue School!  I teach an LLD special education class with students from ages five to seven years of age.  In addition to following each students' personal goals, life skills are also incorporated into the daily routine, as well as music therapy, visits from therapy dogs and group yoga.  My philosophy of teaching is to provide a safe, exciting and stimulating environment for all students.  I believe in focusing on individual needs, and involving students in the process of their learning.  Individual differences need to be recognized and respected.   My personal experiences contribute to my philosophy today in that the most meaningful learning takes place when students are motivated, interested and stimulated!  My goal is to help each child learn how to work to their full potential!
