I began my career as a paraprofessional in a special education classroom for grades one through three before becoming an English teacher. I taught English in 7th grade for three years, and have five years experience teaching high school English. I have always loved working with students with special needs, so two years ago, I pursued my Special Educator's License, Grades K-12. I have worked in an Alternative Learning Program as a one to one tutor and a residential program for behavioral students.
Currently, I am a high school special education teacher and teach all four academic subjects (Math, English, History, and Science). I have extensive experience in preparing students for standardized test, such as the MCAS, with a high rate of success, especially in the area of writing. In addition to teaching at the high school level, I am an adjunct professor of English at a local college. I teach composition, reading, literature, and creative writing courses.
I have experience with special needs students at all grade levels. I began my career working with Autistic and Developmentally Delayed students. I was a personalized learning services tutor at a local college for college students with disabilities. I have been working with Social/Emotional and Behavioral students for the past three years, which has exposed me to both academic and psychological disabilities as well.
I really look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals. I hope to not only raise your grades, but also your confidence in your own abilities.

I am a certified English teacher for grades 7-12 and Special Education for Moderate Disabilities for grades K-12 with a Master's degree in English from Simmons College. I have taught English for ten years in grade 7, high school, and college. I also have experience tutoring in the writing center at a local college where I led a professional development meeting for fellow educators on writing tools for students.
