I am a reading specialist with over 30 years teaching experience ranging from middle school to college. I have supported the instruction of SPED, ELL, GED and RTC placed students requiring academic support. As a newly retired teacher, I was fully trained in Common Core practices, and the application and interpretation of close reading, and formative and summative assessments. In conjunction with the current focus on the comprehension of non-fiction text, I have provided direct instruction to scaffold lessons in support of the cognitive development of higher order thinking skills. Additionally, I have the skill and training to assist students needing instruction in expository, or other written forms of expression.

I respond to the individual learner with sensitivity, adaptability, and humor. It is important for me to establish a friendly rapport and work to understand the best learning approach that works with the student. With patience, a smile, and positive time markers. I will provide direct instruction when needed, but will also guide the learner to guide academic independence.
