Additionally, I have a Master's degree from Christian Brothers University with a reading specialist license track. My undergraduate degree is from Vanderbilt University in which I majored in elementary education and sociology.
I have experience working with students with learning disabilities, ADHD, and special needs. I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham based method of multisensory language arts instruction.
