I am an experienced certified teacher, having held positions in New York, California, and New Jersey. My students have ranged from 7th through 12th grade and junior college, as well as elementary students in a writing workshop environment in Arizona. I am an excellent communicator and have been commended for my creativity and success with guiding students who have not responded well in more traditional environments. My approach is very much one of individualized instruction. My goal is always to guide a student from where they are to where they need and hope to be within the context of the physical and mental environment within which they function. I believe in listening to the voice of the student which needs to be heard.
I have worked with high achievers, underachievers, educationally challenged students, and struggling students in diverse environments. Were I to choose an area of expertise it would be writing. I concentrated in creative writing during my undergraduate program, worked for newspapers, published magazine articles, and have continuously used those same skills in developing businesses, marketing, and consulting. In addition to teaching in a classroom I have owned and successfully developed several restaurants, am an artist whose products were marketed internationally and on television nationally, and have consulted for many developing businesses including children's television programming. My education taught me how to think, to embrace diversity and challenges, and to grow. That is what I bring to the table and hope to pass on.
