About Robyn

I have a B.A. in English and an Elementary/Middle School teaching certificate from McDaniel College. I am also Highly Qualified to teach Special Education, Elementary School, and Middle and High School English.

Before choosing to stay home and raise my two children, I taught third grade in NJ and sixth grade (Reading, English and Greek/Roman History) and third grade dyslexic students at St. Paul's School in Baltimore.

As my children were growing up, I tutored elementary age students, including those with dyslexia, in Reading and Math. I also home schooled my children for 4 years. I currently work at a Middle School as a Special Education Teacher to students who have cognitive disabilities. Formerly I worked with High Road School In-District Partnership with Dorchester County as an Elementary Special Education Teacher and Education Director.
