Ms. Deborah Woods
I began working as an educator in high school and assisted in general education classrooms at my small private school in Oakland, California. Working with children hardly seemed like work for me so I gladly assisted during summers in the mayors Youth Reading program and whenever else my assistance was needed.
During a fieldwork course, while studying for my Psychology BA, I was introduced to working with challenged youths in a non-public school. I loved the job and the impact of the kiddos on me, as well as my influence with them. I enjoyed it so much that I changed my course of college studies and went on to study and prepare myself to enable, support and encourage students with special needs.
