...I am currently working with special needs students at Highland Park High School. I'm a teacher assistant in a program within the school of about 25 students, many of whom have autism, learning disabilities, or Down Syndrome. Whatever each one's particular situation and level of functioning may be, I have really enjoyed working with them and helping them succeed.

...I have a wide variety of interests, including traveling. My family is originally from Belgium and I have been privileged to live in four different countries including Belgium, the UK, and Australia. Although difficult at times, I have loved this experience because it has both broadened my interests and allowed me to create a global network.

...Many methods will be used including paper pencil exercises, dry erase marker assignments, dictation and reading of words, sentences, and stories. I work hard to keep the student invested in the program asa well as keeping the program diverse. I have used these methods myself as a child to learn to read as well as using them for 15 years to help other children learn to read better.
