I am a NYS certified teacher in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. I have over 12 years experience working with children ages 1 - 9. My special areas of experience and interest are pre-k through second grade reading and pre-reading skills and pre-K-2 enrichment. Learning can and should be fun! I favor hands-on, child friendly and thematic approaches to literacy. Each child has their own style of learning, so I gear my lessons to the child's interests and experiences whenever possible. This approach can help your child improve their understanding across their grade level curriculum, tying in reading/English Language Arts, math, science and social studies. I have also have many years of experience helping children who are English language learners and welcome the opportunity to work with those children and their families.
