I love helping students realize their full capacities to learn. I have worked as an aide for students with special needs for almost five years. I have learned a great amount of patience and understanding about what it means to be a successful teacher dealing with students with autism. I believe the reason sometimes students are adverse to reading and writing as both children and adults is they don't see the universal themes present in the literature that are still relevant today. I believe creativity in writing comes from seeing similarities in literature and a person's own life. Books and stories have abilities to positively change our lives. I am currently attending Hunter College for my Master's Degree in childhood education, grades 1-6.
I am certified in Preventing Academic Failure (PAF)- a multisensory Orton Gillingham approach. I was a participant in the 2005 Beacon Scholar Conference- a symposium recognizing two year students for research and written achievement. I graduated from Fordham University (2008) with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

I am available for a free consultation meeting.
