6th-8th Special Ed, LS & Mentally Gifted teacher

Expanding my horizon

Hello! My name is Erika and I teach in a large, urban, public school district. My school is in a very high poverty section of the city. I teach both Special Education, Learning Support and Mentally Gifted for 6th-8th grades. Our school has moved to inclusion with co-teaching. So I co-teach with the Literacy and Math teachers for grades 6-8.

I feel I'm at my best when I can collaborate with others. I love exchanging ideas, giving and receiving feedback. I want to be the best I can be for my students. Connecting with others in the field - beyond the limits of my school walls - will only help!

After growing up in Maui and getting my degree and teaching credential in San Diego; I began my career as an elementary classroom teacher. For the past ten years, I have been working at a charter school in California, serving students in grades K-12. I love seeing how technology, creativity, and forward-thinking can combine to engage students and help them on the path of lifelong learning. Establishing a PLN has been a valuable resource to me in teaching. I look forward to getting to know many of you better!

Hi, I am a special education teacher in a Middle School and I loop between 5th and 6th grades. I am able to work with two different teams of teachers and collaboratively teach with two teachers a year. I am National Board Certified and since going through that process, I want to share what I've learned about my teaching with others. I have never stopped learning and gaining new knowledge and that is why a PLN will be a very important strategy for me to keep improving. Thanks

My name is Andrea Noonoo. I am a career educator from New York City with more than three decades experience in education. I am currently the Professional Development Coordinator at Odyssey Charter High School,a distance education school for at risk students,in Las Vegas. The professional development program that I have developed is a differentiated one; I work with teachers one on one to help them develop websites and online curriculum. I am always interested in sharing ideas and dialoging with teachers so that I can learn what is most helpful to them in their personal professional development. I look forward to interesting discussions where I can learn how to better serve the needs of the teachers that I work with.

I'm Pat and I am a literacy coach for preschool and early childhood teachers in Florida. I've been doing this for 5 year and although I love what I do, I'm looking to grow and do more for our youngest ones. I'm looking for probing discussions to explore professional levels after mentoring.
