I am a Special Ed supporting Teacher in a class of Kindergarten through 5th graders. In my 21st year of teaching I am seeing children who do not say sentences. They are not problem solving. They have very little human interaction since even teacher direction is done a lot on a smartboard. Yes, it keeps attention, but children are learning if something is not fast paced, or entertaining, then they do not have the attention skills to tolorate the slower experience. In organizations, everything is sugar coated for children. Children are not allowed to fail or even be the slightest bit prepared for the world they will face after school. I feel this is something I can help with through my antics and my clowning character Starfish. Children who cannot talk will receive practice while they tell a puppet something. My area of expertise is language impairments and autism as well as learning disabled and children with attention and focus issues. I also teach Mexican Adult Students reading. I use the Edmark Program, Library Books they check out, and We are working on writing as well. I have 2 websites on wealthy affiliate. One is http://esladultreadingforbeginners.siterubix.com and http://beaclown.siterubix.com
At Be A Clown, I am trying to bring clowning to the world the way I enjoy it. No scary or creepy clowns. These clowns can make a difference in a positive way to all ages.
