I have been working with special needs populations for 35 years. I have a bachelor's in special education from East Carolina University, and a master's in elementary education from Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina.

I love to teach reading and math. I love what I do. I believe that all students can learn, and be successful. I am customer-based. My number one customer is the student. My number two customer is the parent/guardian, and professional staff are number three. Please tell me how I may help you, and your child to make this the best learning experience possible.

I feel that the core of student learning is based on relationship. If the student feels safe, accepted and has a rapport with the teacher, then learning will take place.

I have proven success with helping students especially in reading regardless of how far they are behind. Over decades of teaching, I have found that out of a caseload of 30 students regardless of where they have been I have been able to improve their reading scores 1-3 years in a school year even if they have not made 1 years progress in 3-5 years of public school before. I have done it again and again.

There is no greater motivation to a child than success.
