Melissa Finch has been teaching for six years in the special education setting. She teaches elementary students with moderate/severe disabilities. Melissa began selling on TpT in 2012 when she discovered the lack of adapted curriculum for students with moderate/severe disabilities. In order to meet her students vast needs she has over time developed a whole system approach to support other special education teachers. She designs curriculum, behavior supports, visual supports, and communication supports in order to build a comprehensive special education program. As a special education blogger at Autism Adventures, Melissa enjoys connecting with other special education teachers across the nation to build a community of support for educators in the special education field.
