Hello! I am Sonja Moon Taylor, known at USC as Sonja Moon.
I have a B. S. in Elementary Education, a M. Ed. in Administration, and an Ed. S. in Leadership. I have added Special Education and Early Childhood to my certificate over the years. I have taught for the past 16 years and 8 have been in the special education classroom. It is amazing how much I have learned over the years working with this special group of children. Each and every year, I learn more about how to reach individual children and about the different disabilities. Working as a special education teacher, has helped me to be a better teacher overall. I now understand the importance of differentiating instruction for all learners.

Topic for research

I would like to continue to find technology that will help children with ADHD and those that have learning disabilities access the general education curriculum. As I continue to learn more about ADHD as a disability, for both professional and personal reasons, I realize the importance of finding specific techniques and technology that will help these students become successful in school and in life. As for those students who experience problems learning to read and do math, I would like to find alternative methods of delivering instruction so that they may be successful in the regular education classroom. My passion has become reaching every student and helping them to become life long learners. I believe that it is especially important for me as a special education teacher of young children to help build a strong foundation.
