I have been teaching for 20 years now and I have worked with all types of students. In addition to my formal academic training through The University of RI, Rhode Island College and Providence College where I received my Master of Special Education, I am also trained in Applied Behavior Analysis from Bradley Hospital. I worked closely with a behavior analyst and trained many teaching assistants in the use of this methodology in order to educate children with Autism and other pervasive developmental disorders. Although this is my first love, I do truly enjoy working with all children. I am currently teaching 1st grade and have taught 2nd grade (for 4 years) and 6th grade. I have also served as a Resource teacher for grades K-6. I hope I can help you and your child succeed in all areas and ensure a love of learning.
