I have worked with students up to 5th grade. however, that has not always been their level of academic function. My teaching approach has always been to observe the student in order to discover how they learn and then I adjust my style to try and best fit their needs. My motto is "the student dictates how I teach". It is a very student-centered approach.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, then 15 years ago, I attended the Louisiana Resource Center for Educators (LRCE) and received an alternative teaching certificate. I have been teaching with the WBR Parish School System for 15 years. I have taught over 50 students with a variety of disabilities. I have had numerous students who began the school year with me only reading 3-7 words per minute (according to DIBELs data) and when they left for that year (some I followed longer than a school year), they were averaging 35 words per minute. I have had students who were non-verbal that used talkers and were able to begin socialization skills.
The cost for travel may be adjusted on a per case level depending on numerous factors that can be discussed. I require 24 hours prior notice for cancellations. I will do my very best to accommodate your needs and we can discuss other arrangements if 24 hours cannot be given (for emergencies only)
