Early Childhood Special Educator

Tell us a little about your approach to early intervention:

I believe that partnering with parents is the key to a child’s success. I help parents identify their child’s strengths and weaknesses and show them how to build on their child’s interests. Children are more willing to try out challenging activities when they are combined with their interests. Learning should be fun and developmentally appropriate. Learning how to play well and appropriately sets the foundation for preschool and future academic settings.

What qualifications and trainings do you have?

  • B.A. in Sociology, UW
  • WA State Teaching Certificate
  • Early Childhood Education Certificate
  • Additional training include: a variety of teaching experiences, including preschool, Kindergarten, fluent in German.

Are there areas of practice that you specialize in?

Currently, I work with children who have developmental delays in one or more of the domains (self help skills, personal-social skills, communication skills, motor skills or cognitive skills).
