Hello! My name is Justina, and I'm currently employed as a Special Education Teacher in Rochester. I'm a graduate of the University of Rochester with a BA in English with Honors and Psychology, and a MS in Teaching Students with Disabilities with certificates in Literacy and Urban Teaching and Leadership. I loved learning from a young age, and was lucky enough to have teachers who encouraged me on every step of my academic journey. These teachers made me realize that I also enjoyed helping others learn. I am passionate about working with students of all ages, particularly those who have faced challenges in more "traditional" academic settings.

I have loved reading for as long as I can remember, which is why I pursued an English major in college. As a college student, I provided engaging, student-centered literacy tutoring to Pre-K-3rd Grade students in the Rochester City School District.

I have seven years of experience working with students with disabilities. I have tutored elementary school students on the autism spectrum, worked as a substitute teacher in a classroom for students with significant emotional needs, and worked as a 1:1 aide and job coach for young adults in a BOCES program. Currently, I am a Special Education teacher in the Rochester City School district. I have taught students with disabilities in the city of Rochester for the past four years and I have experience tailoring lessons to a variety of learning styles and needs.

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your specific learning needs and goals! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
