I have been teaching elementary and middle schools for 13 years- doing everything from 4th grade language arts basic skills to 8th grade language arts and reading to my current position and true love - kindergarten! Along the way I received a masters in reading curriculum and instruction and have completed half of the necessary coursework to become certified as an Orton Gillingham MultiSensory Reading Tuutor. I truly love reading and feel that it is the cornerstone on which all academic success is built. A love of reading and an innate curiosity will take a child as far as they want to go in this world! I am certified by the state of NJ as an elementary education teacher (K-5) and a reading specialist. I have taken the Praxis II exam and am considered highly qualified to teach K-12 reading and middle school language arts.
