Internship: Special Education Intern at Nelson Place School; Position: Elementary School Teacher in Dallas Uplift School District, Grad School: Master's in Special Education

During my internship, I learned the importance of providing a student with disabilities an appropriate Individual Education Plan (IEP). Working with the Behavior Adjustment Counselor and the classroom teacher, I created a mock case study to evaluate the monthly progress of each student. Seeing the improvements that each student made was amazing, but the most rewarding part was seeing the joy that the students got from learning.
