I am a certified teacher with years of experience in the primary classroom, as well as in tutoring and curriculum writing. My area of greatest expertise is PK-3, particularly with reading and writing skills. I am certified and experienced in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESL/ESOL). In addition, I am available to aid homeschooling families with short- and long-term support in the areas of curriculum and lesson planning, filling in skills gaps, finding literature that supports the standards of learning, and offering individual or small group lessons in a specific topic (e.g., predicting, writing narratives, Spanish, etc.).
I graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester with a double major in Spanish and French, as well as teaching certification in those subjects from grades 7-12. I later earned my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in Multilingual/Multicultural Settings, as well as certification in grades PK-6 and ESOL.
I have taught in DC Public Schools, Arlington Public Schools, and in Puebla, Mexico. I have also worked in curriculum development for the Puerto Rico Department of Education, in addition to tutoring when my schedule has allowed it.
I love teaching. I love the spark in a student's eyes when something finally "clicks." I love being able to personalize instruction and use best practices I have learned throughout my years of training and experience. I look forward to working with you.
