Introduction: I have been raised in the special education world. In many ways I am a "purist" I want what is going to be best for the child. If I know that a particular resource is going to help one child then I will purchase that resource. I am creative and have come up with new techniques, strategies, and interventions that help children who have previously had little to no success. I research many things from special education to motor skills, sensory, speech and language, social, emotional, and behavioral. I have found that everything ties together. The more skills you can target at one time the better chance you have of achieving success for the child. The small success stories. In my teaching career I found that my most challenging students were always my favorite because as they began to make slow and steady progress I was filled with joy. The other reason I love my job is because no 2 days are alike. The students are imaginative, thoughtful, and full of good.
