Professional Summary
I have a passion for working with students with special needs. Being able to guide
children through their learning brings me great satisfaction. I have many experiences working
with a variety of individuals with special needs. I have been in many different schools and types
of classrooms, as well as worked at a summer camp for people of all ages with a wide range of
disabilities. Teaching these individuals is truly the most rewarding career.
