I have a Master's degree from Goucher College. I love teaching reading, English, and Language Arts to elementary, middle, and high school students. I have been in education for 40 years, and enjoy assisting every student reach his/her full potential in reading, English, and Language Arts. Every student can read and think critically about the text whether it is fiction, nonfiction, or media.

I have written Language Arts curriculum for school systems for many years, and know the expectations of the grade level standards. Most recently, I worked for the Maryland State Department of Education planning and implementing Language Arts instruction for the statewide turnaround schools. I look forward to assisting your child to love and be successful in reading, English, and Language Arts.

I have coordinated and written districtwide curriculum in reading, English, literature, and Language Arts. Also, the new SAT will focus on evidence-based reading which I am familiar with.

I have spent the last nine years assisting schools, teachers, Reading Specialists, and administrators with the transition and implementation of the Common Core grade-level standards.

I am excited to meet you and help you with anything you might need to be the best reader, writer, English/Language Arts student. I can also help you read and understand any content area subject. Looking forward to working with you!
