I have been an elementary teacher at Hill School of FW (for learning differences) for 16 years, building students' self confidence, teaching them to learn to read fluently and improve comprehension. I believe phonics is a crucial skill in learning to read.

I worked at the Texas Boys Choir for four years prior, teaching Language Arts and math. I have 90 hours of Language Therapy training and Special Ed. certification. I am a compassionate & friendly, yet firm educator with an excellent track record of helping students find success in reading & math. Most of my students see positive results in as little as six to nine weeks' time. I know having good rapport with students promotes self-esteem & learning!
