I have worked for the last 7 years at a public high school in the special education department. I have experience in general education classes as well as special day classes. I worked 6 months (2006-7) in elementary (pre-school) and learned how to use pics. I have had the opportunity to substitute in the bridge program at the high school level. In 2014 I worked grade 1-2 in summer school and in 2015 I was a substitute in many different classes.
I can do basic knitting, crochet, needle point, embroidery, cross stitch and counted cross stitch. I have been doing this most of my life about 20+ years. I am very creative and I make my own patterns if necessary. I am right handed. I taught a special needs student, who is left handed, how to crochet and she has taken it to a new level. She creates her own patterns and items. Recently, I helped a friend re-learn how to do needlepoint.
