** For the week of May 18, 2020, students in the Life Skills program will continue working on assignments in Google Classrooms created for each subject. This week, the 9th and 10th graders are expected to complete 4 assignments (1 from each subject). The 12th graders are expected to complete 2 English assignments on the due date (Tuesday and Thursday). I will continue to meet with students via Google Hangouts on the same days as previously scheduled, to work through some of the assignments. Unified Club will not meet this week due to the Memorial Day extended weekend. Please continue to reach out to me via Remind or email if assistance is needed. Both students and parents are doing a WONDERFUL JOB with all of these changes so far! I am so very proud of everyone's efforts! **

Welcome to my All About Teacher page! I am excited to bring all of my previous experiences in special education to Steinert's Autism Program, again this year. I have worked for 16 years with students with autism in a special needs, self contained, public school district. I worked as a Teacher for Students with Disabilities, for children ages 5-18. I taught this population of students in academics, social/communication/language skills, behavioral skills, as well as Community-Based Instruction/Life Skills. In 2014, I completed 6 Post-Master’s courses from Rutgers University in Applied Behavior Analysis. In 2007, I received my Masters in Special Education, from Kean University and in 2003, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education/ Psychology from Rider University. I use differentiated instruction and modifications/accommodations to help each individual in my classes, progress and succeed. I am enthusiastic to take what I learned throughout my education and specialized training, and apply it on a daily basis, in order to meet the needs of all of my Steinert students.
