I completed my M.S.Ed. at the University of Pennsylvania in the Reading, Writing and Literacy program in January 2012 and currently hold a k-12 Reading Specialist certification.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 2007, where I majored in English and minored in Linguistics. I am knowledgeable about English literature, as well as grammar, and expository writing techniques. I am a patient educator, and make sure my students understand the material before moving on. Because of my Linguistics background I have a good understanding of grammatical patterns and am able to use different approaches and find what works best for individuals.
At this time I am working at an after school program with students in grades 4-6. I enjoy the after school setting because it provides more time to get to know students and allow them to explore their interests and talents.
