Subject: Curriculum Assistance is designed to support exceptional learners in developing the skills needed to successfully access the general curriculum using research-based programs. Lessons include, but are not limited to, instruction in math computation, math reasoning, decoding, written expression, reading fluency, reading comprehension, social-emotional skills, behavior, and organization. The lessons are completed together in class and done through modeling and guided instruction. When we conduct progress monitoring, which is how we collect data regarding student goals and measure what students are able to do independently, they work on tasks during class but without assistance from the teachers. We do not assign homework and usually have some time at the end of class when we can assist with general education assignments if a student asks us for help.

This is my first year teaching, but I previously worked as a Registered Behavior Technician providing ABA therapy in both clinic and home settings for children diagnosed with Autism. Behavioral therapy has lots of ties to teaching, so I'm excited to bring my experience into the classroom setting!
Hey everyone! My name is Madison Sauls and this will be my first year at Overhills High School, and my first year within the classroom!
I am from a very small town in eastern North Carolina, called Warsaw, where our greatest call to fame is having more hogs than people (seriously! I'll tell you all about it). I went to Campbell University after graduating high school in 2016 and completed my Bachelors in May of 2020 in the areas of Biology and Psychology. I fell in love with Harnett County and never left, so here I am today. I began working as a Registered Behavior Technician while finishing undergrad and started my Masters online (only three days after graduation!!) through Ball State University, studying Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Many ABA principals have been applied across different settings and has often been utilized within the school system, so I was really happy to find the opportunity to make the change from a clinical setting to the school!
I love to "nerd out" over topics in biology and different ABA concepts, so feel free to ask me about anything. I'd love to talk about it! I also love the outdoors and am a beach lover through and through (though I have come to enjoy the mountains). I'm excited to tackle this first year and can't wait to see all the great things we can all accomplish together! Go Jags!
