Bio

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~Albert Einstein

As a recently medically retired educator who is still young, capable and passionate, I'm delighted to have the opportunity to still work with learners of all ages. I am skilled at helping learners discover their own genius. I bring 14 years of solid, award-winning experience with me.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~Albert Einstein

As a recently medically retired educator who is still young, capable and passionate, I'm delighted to have the opportunity to still work with learners of all ages. I am skilled at helping learners discover their own genius. I bring 14 years of solid, award-winning experience with me.

My disability (a debilitating autoimmune disease, scleroderma, which manifests itself in bone-crushing fatigue, shortness of breath, and severe coughing fits)is actually a teaching tool. I'm disabled with this horrible disease, but I am not voiceless; that's a lesson-- the power of one's voice-- that I love most about teaching and tutoring English. Do you remember the first time a teacher finally demystified something for you? That's what I bring to my students consistently in our learning community: the assurance that we are all learning and growing together and CAPABLE, no matter what "handicaps" have been handed to us. The uniqueness of the relationship that we have in a tutoring relationship helps instruction to be focused specifically on your needs. We are guaranteed to succeed, aren't we?

In addition to 14 years of teaching middle school English Language Arts (reading, writing, grammar, spelling and all facets of the English language), I have experience with authoring curriculum and with implementing and training other teachers on the Connecticut Writing Project. What does all that mean for you? It means that I know what I'm doing as a reader and a writer, and I can help you grow as a reader and a writer, too! :)

I invite you to contact me and we'll get started so you can see for yourself who I am as an educator, writer, and advocate for learners.
