I am a recently retired SPED teacher who holds a bachelors degree in Speech Arts/Elementary Education and a masters degree in Special Education. I have had the privilege of teaching children with special needs for 27 years. During this time I implemented developmentally appropriate curriculum for my students, integrating the children's needs, interests and abilities. In working with students, families and colleagues, I have been fortunate enough to encounter many individuals who truly represent the best there is in education.

I became interested in teaching ESL while volunteering for Literacy Volunteers Of Rockland County. It was during this time that I realized that my experience in creating individualized programs which engaged students with real-life materials might be helpful in teaching adult learners how to speak English as a second language.
