I have taught in public school districts in both Pennsylvania and Maryland to grades 7-12. I am certified to teach English in Pennsylvania. I also have my BFA in theater and have an extensive background with theatrical business including performing, designing, directing, stage management. I have partnered with Garnet Valley School District in the theater summer program which I am the head counselor and director of the program. I have taught all academic levels. One on one teaching is the highlight of my career for a child can truly have a program catered to their educational needs and get the attention to move forward in individual success.
