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!
