How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
My first encounter with students who learn differently was at NYRS/AiNYC as an instructor of restaurant management. I had to learn to deliver content in different ways to these students, leading me to pursue an Ed.S in Instructional leadership with a concentration in Brain Based Learning which I completed in 2006. This gave me the knowledge and skills to work with students with learning differences. However it was not until coming to Beacon that I was able to fully use everything I learned on a daily basis.
