I have a bachelor's degree in special education, and a master's degree in reading. I teach special education at Valley Christian High School. I teach mostly math and science to children with special needs. I have 11 years experience in special education. I've taught Pre-Algebra (8th grade math), Algebra 1, and Life Skills Geometry. I have also taught Biology, Earth Science and Physical Science. I have taught English for 3 years as well. I really enjoy working one on one with students. Teaching is my dream and I am happy to say I'm living my dream.
