About me :)
My name is Alicia. I am a preschool Special Education teacher at The Groden Center. In my classroom I have a co-teacher, 5 special education students and 4 typical peers who serve as role models. I have been at Groden for the past 7 years and previously worked with students ages 6-21. I can truly say I love my job (granted it can be stressful at times but at the end of the day I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach). I have my undergraduate degree in Social Work from RIC and am currently fulfilling the required classes for my Severe Profound Special Education Certification. Once I complete my certification classes I plan on continuing my education by taking classes to obtain my Master's in Special Education. I only have about 4 more classes left then I will be done. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. This year is a big year for me as I turn 30 and am also getting my own house. I look forward to getting to know my peers in this class and having enriched discussions about social issues in education.
