Welcome to my classroom web page! My school is called Coastal Academy, we are part of the Liberty County School System, and RESA. Coastal Academy is located in Hinesville, Georgia close to Fort Stewart and is a theraputic program for  children that are behaviorally and emotionally disturbed. I am a new teacher this year and am looking  forward to working with all of the children!
I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and attended NovaSoutheastern University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I have two children, Morgan (boy 17) and Troy (boy 15) and am looking forward to spending time with them this summer.  Currently, I reside in the small sleepy town or Darien, Ga. I also am looking forward to travel down in the Florida Keys to do some snorkeling (check out the Vandenburg the newest artificial reef in Key West!) and also hope to continue pursuit of my ceramics classes as part of my relaxation!
I am a beginning teacher at Coastal Academy and have been told so far that I will be assigned to a classroom of children that have been diagnosed with severe autism. All of the children are non verbal, so I am looking for new ways to engage their interest and to promote communication. The children I will be working with are of middle school age, but are working at a basic level elementary level. My goals will be to reinforce and develop their language and reading skills. The following is an interesting site for parents of autistic children.
