Mult. Subject TC, SPED TC, MA.T, MA SPED
Greetings! I'm Amy. I proudly earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education from the esteemed halls of the University of California, Irvine (UCI), setting the stage for my commitment to shaping young minds. Building upon this foundation, I pursued my Master of Arts in Teaching at the revered University of Southern California (USC), concurrently obtaining both a Multiple Subjects Credential and Education Specialist Credential. As an experienced educator deeply committed to fostering inclusive learning environments, I have dedicated eight years to supporting a wide spectrum of students, from high to low functioning, verbal and non-verbal, and those with various learning differences. My passion lies in tailoring educational approaches to meet the unique needs of each learner, ensuring their growth and success.
My journey in education has encompassed enriching experiences with students spanning a diverse range of abilities and challenges. I have had the privilege of working closely with individuals along the autism spectrum, employing personalized strategies to nurture their strengths and bolster their academic progress. Through patient guidance and individualized support, I have witnessed remarkable breakthroughs in communication and comprehension among non-verbal students.
Additionally, my experience extends to collaborating with students grappling with learning disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia, and processing disorders. I take a multifaceted approach, leveraging tailored techniques to accommodate a plethora of learning styles. By implementing innovative methods and adaptive resources, I aim to empower students to overcome obstacles, fostering an environment where they can thrive academically and personally.
Furthermore, my work has extended to students with orthopedic issues, where I’ve incorporated accessible learning tools and adjusted teaching methodologies to ensure an inclusive education experience. Creating an environment that prioritizes their comfort and encourages their active participation remains a cornerstone of my teaching philosophy.
My approach is centered on empathy, patience, and a firm belief in the potential of every student. I strive to create a safe and nurturing space that celebrates individual strengths while addressing challenges head-on. By tailoring lessons to suit diverse learning needs and employing a range of multisensory techniques, I aim to make learning engaging, meaningful, and accessible to all.
I firmly believe that education should be inclusive and accommodating to the unique requirements of each student. My goal is to not only facilitate academic growth but also instill confidence, resilience, and a love for learning in every individual I work with.
I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to bring my wealth of experience and passion for inclusive education to support and empower students. Together, let’s embark on a journey of learning, growth, and success
