Hello, my name is Leah Nierman.
I have a Mild/Moderate Special Education Teaching Credential with an authorization in Autism and a certification to teach ages 5-22. I also have a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential certification to teach Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Additionally, I have a Master’s in Education with a focus in Curriculum and Design from University of San Diego.
Over the last decade, I have worked at nearly every level of the school system. I was a personal aide to children with Down Syndrome and Autism; I gained experience as a Resource Specialist administering assessments and writing IEP (Individualized Education Program) goals; and in the last few years, I taught Second and Third Grade in a general education classroom.
More recently, I have developed a passion for health and wellness, I strongly believe nutrition, health, and wellness function as a direct link to optimizing brain and learning capacity. I am currently working on becoming a certified health coach in order to help advise and assist clients in meeting their wellness goals. As I continue to learn about this fascinating field, I am excited to offer my clients a greater diversity of tools to help improve their learning and overall well-being.
