Summary

I have received my degree in BRT (Bachelor of Rehabilitation Therapy) from NIMH (GGSIPU), India. Currently, I work as an Inclusive Education Teacher/Special Education Needs Teacher for Pathways School Noida. I am trained in Play Therapy, Brain Gym and the HWT Pre-K through 5th grade curriculum.

Being a highly adaptable and versatile educator, I enjoy the opportunity to teach a diverse group of children, including those with ADD/ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Speech & Language Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Learning Disabilities, and physical challenges. These experiences have helped me blossom into a well-rounded and compassionate individual, who takes each student’s unique goals, needs, and interest into account, and creates effective lesson plans and activities to accommodate them.

My greatest capability is facilitating all styles of learners. I develop multi-sensory lesson plans to meet the needs of auditory, visual, tactile, and kinaesthetic learners. Being a Microsoft Innovative Educator, I also incorporate various forms of technology, manipulatives, group work, and thematic units to teach new concepts and materials.

I have gained more than 6 years of experience in creating, designing, executing and maintaining Individualized Education Plans and I am well versed with the knowledge of conducting Workshops for a group of students, parents, professionals and doctors.
