About JoAnn

I am a highly skilled, experienced, and certified teacher. I have years of experience teaching reading (K-6th grade) as well as, math, written expression, and vocabulary development. I have completed over 300 additional continuing education units focused on reading, math, and writing development. I will develop a program in any academic area to meet your child's specific skills that need to be mastered. I have 3 recent outstanding references as well as two teaching certificates (Florida and Illinois) in the area of Special education.

In addition, I am instilled with passion and dedication to help students. I feel there is no greater reward then helping students be successful in school and be filled with self confidence and motivation. I have a current resume and outstanding references from my former principals.

I have a graduate degree in education from the University of Michigan and a 6th year degree in special education from Southern Connecticut University.

I look forward in helping you to develop the needed skill area that will ensure you success with your academics.
