I am a New York State, New York City Licensed and Certified teacher. I am licensed and certified in N-6 elementary education, and as a Teacher of the Deaf. I was a Special Education teacher for 31 years and am recently retired. I have extensive experience in teaching beginning reading skills and in ESL. I focus primarily on auditory skills including phonemic awareness and the decoding of the sound-symbol relationship of the English language. I incorporate a whole language, literacy oriented approach in which the arts and a rich background of general knowledge is inculcated. Vocabulary development is an ongoing component of my approach. I use games, songs, classic children's literature and the Orten-Gillingham method of direct sequential instruction in order to give my students a comprehensive exposure to the joys of reading and a competence in the necessary basic skills needed to be literate in our society.
I also enjoy teaching older youngsters through High School, in the areas of English and History. I have extensive experience working with older students. I focus mainly on higher level vocabulary development including Greek and Latin roots and use a multidisciplinary approach to the study of history.
