...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 work with the children without emphasizing the disability. I stress what they are capable of doing and show the student ways to learn and do more. I work on the material that is needed to be doing well in school.

...My approach is simple: adaptive teaching. As learners, we all have a unique learning style, and we learn best when concepts are provided in a way that best fits that style. I work with each of my students to identify what their learning style is and help them to understand it for themselves.

...Preparing for the ACT science does not involve memorizing science facts. Rather, it should focus on reading graphs, tables and research summaries as well as looking for patterns in numbers. Test objectives include measuring a student's ability in extracting information as well as making inferences.

...After teaching a college level class called Critical thinking and problem solving, I realized that many of the skills we worked on involved time management and study skills. Working with special education students over the years, that was one of our major issues: how to study. So, the experience I have is very diverse from 1st grade through College students.
