Hi! I’m Ms. Gomez!
Parents and students, welcome back to school! I am so excited to see all of your smiling faces this year!! This is my 3rd year teaching the self contained autism class; prior to teaching I worked as a behavior technician for 3 years focusing on verbal behavior and early interventions for kiddos with autism.
This year will look a little different than we are used to- nonetheless, we are working hard to make it another safe and successful school year!!
In my classroom we focus on being positive!! We strive to maintain a happy and fun environment for our kiddos to keep them engaged and challenged! With my background in verbal behavior and applied behavior analysis, we are constantly working on getting our kids to functionally communicate. This year we will continue to work on social skills, verbal behavior and communication, modified curriculum (Encore/Teach Town) and behavior reduction practices.
I look forward to another wonderful year learning, growing and exploring with your kiddos!
