About Barbara

I have recently moved to Manhattan to retire. I love NYC and lived here in my 20s. I have always dreamed of returning on a permanent basis. So two years ago, when I planned to retire, I decided I would relocate to NYC for this next chapter of my life and that is what I did.

I have more than 50+ years in special education. For all of my career, I have taught children with special needs. I have extensive experience working with children with autism, mental retardation and learning disabilities.

I have spent my entire career with a focus on creating an exciting learning experience that holds the attention of students and makes learning and studying fun.

I have an M.S. in Special Education and 50+ years of teaching and tutoring a variety of students with special needs, including children with autism, mental retardation and learning disabilities. I have years of experience with the Wilson Reading Program, DISTAR Reading Program, as well as the Spire Reading Program.

I am a highly motivated individual with excellent people and leadership skills. I excel at creating a positive learning environment while encouraging individual growth. I would appreciate any opportunity to discuss your needs and objectives, as well as my proven abilities to fulfill them.
