As a middle school English and science teacher for the past decade, I have dedicated my work life to improving student successes both in and out of the classroom. I have worked with students of all ages ranging from grades 1-12 in a variety of capacities and have coached winning basketball teams for both girls and boys. I taught in inclusion classrooms, serving students with a variety of individual needs from hyperactivity and learning differences to Emotional Disturbance, hearing impaired and physical limitations. I am excited to work with both students and families to make sure school is an exciting place where you feel success. The dedication and discipline I learned from playing sports throughout my life has helped me develop a unique style of interacting with students that creates a warm trusting environment for them to excel. I can't wait to start working with you!

ADD/ADHD

I have been an inclusion general education teacher in New York State for the last 10 years. I have taught students, both medicated and not, within small groups and taught the English, writing, and science in classes of up to 36 students.

For my students with classified ADD or ADD Hyperactivity I have a passing rate of over 80% in an inclusion class.

Basketball

For the last eight years I have coached teams and individual workout sessions for basketball. I use a combination of watching film, studying yourself on video, writing out plays, and conditioning, and court practice to build the fundamentals of the game.

I have worked with boys and girls ages 7-20 and they develop their love for the game!

Dyslexia

I have been an inclusion general education teacher in New York State for the last 10 years. I have taught over 40 different students with dyslexia and have a 100% passing rate for those students.

As an inclusion teacher I am happy to work with any student who is willing to get tutoring.

I have been an inclusion general education teacher in New York State for the last 10 years. I have taught students who require special services a paraprofessional. I have dealt with physical limitations of different types from hearing impaired to cerebral palsy. As an inclusion teacher I am happy to work with any student who is willing to get tutoring.

Study Skills

I have been an inclusion general education teacher in New York State for the last 10 years. During that time I have taught grammar, writing, English, literature response, and science. As I have worked with a variety of contents, I know different strategies for organizing, classifying, accessing, and recalling lots of information.

As a person who needed to use excellent study skills to deal with my own learning disability, I have been ale to maximize these strategies to make it in the classroom as a learner, teacher, and student.
