Meet the Teacher

     Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I thought I would introduce myself.  I am a fifth year senior at UTSA studying Special Education.   I have had extensive hands on experience growing up in a church family with a child who has down syndrome and another that was a shaken baby.  Here is where my interest began.

     Then I spent some time babysitting and tutoring.  I graduated from High school as Salutatorian and received a full scholarship from the Cailloux family in Kerrville, Texas. Once my Junior year began I decided to get a job at a daycare.  First a very small daycare with a capacity of 30 kids.  Then moving to a much larger daycare with at least 10 rooms with a max capacity of 15 students per room.  When summer came around, that number seemed to double because of school age.  I have currently been working there for 2 years.

     With UTSA, I have acquired 100+ hours of observation ranging from 'back' units, to BMC(behavior management classroom), to general ed, and to ESY(extended school year).

     Now I am finishing my last year at UTSA and planning on teaching somewhere in S.A. With this blog, I am hoping I can combine my research and information from my undergrad work and set up a useful resource for me and other teachers.

Have a good Tuesday!
