Farah has worked with a variety of learner profiles over the past 10 years. Her goal is to give strength and guidance for those who are navigating their path through the world. Knowledge comes in all shapes and sizes. So does the ability to express that knowledge. Farah’s years of experience have taught her how important the values of patience, flexibility, and positivity are in the classroom.

Farah’s teaching experience began at a private school in Northern California for students with ASD, where she taught a variety of classes including film studies, P.E. and social learning curriculum. Relocating to Colorado brought a new sense of fervor to her work. Farah worked in the high functioning autism classroom at a local high school, then went on to earn her master’s degree in special education. She worked as a high school special education case manager for 3 years before taking a year off to spend with her newborn daughter. She is excited to take on new challenges with the Temple Grandin School team.
