Position: SLS Paraeducator
I have worked with special education students on and off since my first job in high school. I did respite care and I have worked with adults in a swim program at the Boys and Girls Club. I worked in middle schools in Massachusetts and here in Colorado. I have worked one on one with severe students in a self contained classroom and also in a significant support needs classroom, with some students partially mainstreamed. I left the field when I relocated here to Colorado and worked in the Criminal Justice System for 14 years. I returned working in the school system, with special education, when I adopted our first child. My family is currently a foster family for a 15 month old boy, whom we hope to adopt. I love my job and I really enjoy working with special needs students.
