I am currently the K-2 Autism Teacher here at Hughes Elementary School. Each year brings new discoveries and achievements in educating our students. It is my privilege to be able to work with your children. I have been teaching in the Autism Program for six years. I have experience working with children with Autism for 9 years. I can truly say that I have found my passion, this is where my heart is!
I began my teaching career in 1998 when I graduated from Ottawa University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I decided a year after being in the classroom that I wanted to stay home to raise my four children. When I returned to Education, I was an Instructional Assistant in a Special Education Preschool. I was also a Substitute Teacher working in an Autism classroom. As a second income, I provided Habilitation and Respite to children with Autism. I teach children with Autism, but they are also teaching me, everyday I am learning from them.
I believe that each child brings their own unique talents, personalities, and experiences into the classroom. I will be working very hard to establish our classroom as a happy, challenging, comfortable and safe environment where we can all do our personal best. I look forward to learning with your child and sharing curriculum with them. In order to have success in the classroom, we focus on consistency, sticking to a schedule, reinforcing positive behaviors and creating a classroom safety zone.
In my "free-time", I enjoy spending time with my four children, two girls and two boys. I like to support them in their activities, which include gymnastics and baseball. They definitely keep me busy when I am not in the classroom.
I believe that to give your child the best opportunity for success in their education, Communication is the key! Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. I am eager and happy to be teaching your children.
Together we can make this a great experience for your child!
