Although she has many years teaching in private and public schools, Ms. Mosher is in eighth year of teaching at Seneca Ridge and her fourth year in the Autism program. She has worn many hats while at Seneca Ridge, beginning with teaching the behavioral needs students, switching to teaching Language Arts for two years (including VGLA), and then into the Autism/ functional program.
In the process of squeezing as much academic learning, functional and social skills, and community based instruction out of the school year, Ms. Mosher does not assign nightly homework. In the course of her teaching career, she has come to the conclusion that she would much rather take the 20 teaching minutes used to track down and collect homework, and teach!
She began her teaching career after graduating from American University with a degree in Elementary and Special Education. Ms. Moshers has acrued over 30 hours of graduate work in teaching students with special needs, including children with Autism. She has just begun the ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) Certificate Program at George Mason University.
Ms. Mosher lives "in the country" with her family and surrounded by her dogs, cats, goats, horses, and feathered friends.
