I am a teacher. My official title is "Teacher of Students with Exceptional Needs" or "Exceptional Educator." I like that.
I am fortunate that I love what I do. Now, I don't love EVERYTHING about my job, but who does anyway? I absolutely love working with kids. They are funny, enlightening and maliable. What a wonderful combination!
While enjoy working with all students, my passion and expertise lies within working with, advocating for and teaching students labeled as having emotional disabilities and / or behavior concerns.
I believe it is so important in teaching to have a passion and rely on that. I am really fortunate to have several unruly students to keep me charged at all times! :)
How's that for a first post?
