Welcome to my Professional Portfolio!
A native of PA, I grew up in Hershey, and am currently a senior at Elizabethtown College. I will graduate in 2016 with a dual certification in Early Childhood PreK-4 and Special Education K-8, as well as a minor in Spanish. From experience, I have discovered that my greatest joy is working with children. I enjoy the challenge of individualizing instruction to address a diverse spectrum of learners. Fluent in Spanish, I especially appreciate teaching children who are ELLs. I have additional experience working with students with learning differences, emotional needs, autism, behavioral challenges, and developmental delays. I value diversity in the classroom, and embrace students of all abilities, origins, and socio-economic backgrounds. I am enthusiastic and passionate about both teaching and learning. I look to ignite this same ardor in others.
