English Language Arts
How many years have you been teaching?:
I love teaching Special Education. I incorporate social skills as much as possible. Building empathy skills is the most valuable skill I teach. Exposing middle school students to the harsh realities of being different encourages them to challenge previous views in an effort to understand that everyone has an aspect to their life that brings hardship. Accepting the differences encourages a renewed perspective that increases their emotional and intellectual understanding of the value of tolerance will enrich their life in so many ways.
