In 2011, I retired from teaching for Special School District. I am certified to teach elementary education students as well as students with disabilities. My 31 year experience includes teaching one-on-one as well as small groups. Along with teaching in the resource room, I have also assisted students in the general education setting. Planning, assessing, and reteaching, if necessary, are the foundation of learning. I create lessons that cater to my students' strengths and interests. I look forward to working with you and your child.
Thank you for considering me in your search.
