I am Aruna Kocherlakota, SID/PID teacher in ELMS. I am happily married and a proud mother of two children, a daughter and a son. My daughter is a software engineer and married. My son is a Ph.D student. I have been teaching in Special education setting as a special educator since 2004 in different school systems in Georgia, USA. I have a bachelor’s degree in special education as well as Master's degree in Psychology and both of these degrees helped me understand my students' strengths and needs that are unique from child to child. Out of my interest, I did my early childhood education diploma from Stratford Career Institute, USA since I was dealing with 3 to 7 yrs. age group children in my initial career years. I also have a highly qualified teaching certificate from GAPSC. I can proudly say that all of my students are greatly benefiting from my various educational exposures.
