For over 22 years I have taught hundreds of children and have a reputation for providing appropriate content to support student engagement and success in a nurturing environment. Additionally, I have many years of experience tutoring students further strengthening their confidence and ability to actively participate in their classrooms and beyond.

Language Arts, particularly in the area of reading and writing has always been my area of expertise. My Masters degree focused on Curriculum and Instruction as well as reading pathology.

I was selected by the Council of Chief State Officers to be one of the 18 writers in the country that wrote the Common Core State Standards in the area of Language Arts. These are currently the standards that most teachers are responsible for following and being one of the authors provides me with an exceptional view of the requirements and prepares students for assessments as well.

I look forward to working with students, motivating them and helping them to become active participants in the global community. My goal is to help students rise to be confident, engaged and successful learners.
