SKE 45ICT

I've been teaching some form of special education for over 30 years (self-contained, resource room, collaborative, integrated - grades 4-12, all subjects), and still love teaching. Over the past 20 years, I have been teaching 4th and 5th grade students, most recently looping back and forth each year. I get excited as I plan for each new school year, and make notes as I teach throughout the year on what i might want to add, subtract or revise for the following year. I want each student to leave my room at the end of the year feeling more confident and looking forward to learning more the next year. I take them from where they are in each area to as far as I can get them. It's been a rewarding journey so far.
