Professional Experience and Interests:
- While teaching in public schools I taught children who were self-contained, received resource support and those in the collaborative classrooms. Their disability areas varied, but I spent most of my time working with children with very complex challenges. I have taugh elementary, middle school and high school, and post high students. My experiences collaborating with other teachers were simply grand! I have also worked for the Virginia Department of Education doing consulting in and training of special education.
