About Michael

I am a recent graduate of Fitchburg State University where I majored in Special Education, Moderate Needs, grades 5 to 12. I also completed a second major in Interdisciplinary Studies, with clusters in History, Math, and Science. I have completed student teaching in urban public schools, and a practicum in a therapeutic school for students with behavioral and emotional difficulties. I have home schooled one of my stepchildren to avoid having the child retained while awaiting placement out of district. As part of my education, I have had extensive training in the process of evaluation and the IEP process, and will be willing to attend IEP meetings for my clients. I believe in the team effort. I have had great success in building rapport with my students, and work to find which teaching style fits best with the student's learning style. By my picture, you can easily tell that I am well into middle age. I have raised two children, and helped three stepchildren along their way.
