“My philosophy is that every child can learn. Finding the method to reach the child on an academic level is a challenge I strive to each day.” - Cynthia Carrig
Nine years ago I started teaching in a self-contained classroom for students with moderate cognitive disabilities. I have a current professional teaching certificate in the state of Florida which is valid until June of 2016. I am certified and have experience teaching Special Education, Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum, and I am ESOL endorsed. I have taken five out of the six courses towards my endorsement in Reading and plan to have that completed by January of 2012. I applied for my Massachusetts state teacher license on April 15, 2011 and it is currently pending. I have a basic fluency in American Sign Language and have taught students with hearing impairments in my classroom.
