My name is Denise Pearson. I have been teaching Functional Skills and Peer Tutoring at Northridge high school for six and a half years. I am grateful to get to work at this wonderful school. I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing teenagers and a wonderful faculty and staff. I am always glad to answer any questions that you may have. Please don't hesitate to ask.
I just want to tell you a little about what lead me into teaching people with special needs. I grew up with a cousin with special needs. I learned a lot from him and his family. I attended Manti high school and was a peer tutor there. I got my SPED teaching degree at Utah State University. While I was there I worked as a teacher's aide in a special education class. I also worked in a home with adults with special needs. I love to work with all kinds of people and figure out what makes them tick. Everyone is unique and has something great to offer the world.
