For the last 5 1/2 years I've taught special education in NJ public schools, helping families with children with dyslexia, autism, cognitive impairments, and other developmental disabilities. I also tutored several children who struggled with reading and writing after school using the Orton-Gillingham and Wilson Reading program. This summer I finished my Orton-Gillingham certification, which is IMSLEC accredited, through Fairleigh Dickinson University. Now that I completed that post-graduate work, I have more time to help more students who are struggling with traditional methods and keep them moving successfully through the school year!
I am certified in PA in special education PK-12, early childhood education, and elementary education. I have extensive experience with Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Fundations Reading Program, Words their Way, 4-Square writing, and guided reading practices. I also have experience with Everyday Math, and the multi-sensory TouchMath program.
It is a passion of mine to make all children see themselves as readers, writers, and good students. I believe that all children are great kids, and often they begin to lose this zest for learning when they cannot learn like everyone else through traditional methods. I love working with kids that need room to move, time away from a desk, and need their interests tapped into to really promote new learning!
