I am certified in Florida to teach K-6, which means I have passed the state requirements to teach these grade levels. I have 36 years of teaching experience in Elementary Education and Middle Grades. I have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, a Master's of Education in Middle Grades Education, and and Education Specialists degree in Elementary Education.
My background is in Elementary Education and I have used phonics to teach young learners, over-aged learners, learners with special needs, and those trying to improve their abilities in reading and word acquirement. My youngest students were 1st graders who spoke Italian and Spanish. I was proud to start their journey as learners of the English language and beginning readers.
