I am a Master Teacher with several years of experience teaching Learning Disabled students in the NYC Public School System. I have worked with students of all levels and created differentiated lesson plans and IEPs to meet each student's individual needs. I understand that not all children learn the same way and that every student has gifts and talents that need to be discovered and allowed to grow.

I am trained in the Wilson Reading program and Schools Attuned. These programs offer students the ability to learn reading and writing in a way that builds on their strengths and compensates for their weaknesses.

I believe all students can learn given the right instructional opportunities, patience, understanding, compassion and dedication.
