About Cathy

My philosophy as a teacher is to focus on each child regardless of diversity or disability. For me, teaching is a calling, a gift, something I have worked many years to attain. I graduated from SUNY Brockport in 2007 with a Masters of Education in Childhood Disabilities. I have taught in the Rochester City School District and also as a per diem substitute in the Gates Chili School District. I am currently a substitute at the Norman Howard school and have been there for 2 years. I have extensive experience with grades 1-9 and a variety of experience in grades 10-12. I accommodate the different learning styles and academic levels of each child. Although I prefer tutoring in my home, I will come to you! References are available upon your request.
