About D.

I am a retired special ed teacher with over 30 years of experience. I specialize in remedial reading and math particularly at the elementary level. I am an avid reader and love imparting the joy of reading with others. I get excited helping students learn to grasp math concepts. I have experience with common core standards and writing/meeting IEP goals. I also have experience with various disabilities which qualify for special ed intervention.

I enjoy interacting with students of all ages. It would be my pleasure to work with anyone who wants to be more successful in school and ultimately life.
