About Anita


Bio

My career in teaching began when my two sons were in elementary school and I was a parent tutor. I believed I could make a difference in the lives of future students based on teacher practices I observed from successful teachers, as well as from teachers who were not tolerant of learning differences and energy levels among students.

My career in teaching began when my two sons were in elementary school and I was a parent tutor. I believed I could make a difference in the lives of future students based on teacher practices I observed from successful teachers, as well as from teachers who were not tolerant of learning differences and energy levels among students.

I returned to school and earned my master's degree in Educational Leadership and elementary certification at Immaculata University. I have been employed for the last twelve years by the Chester County Intermediate Unit teaching incarcerated youth who need patience, persistence, and encouragement in order to become successful and productive students in order to earn a high school diploma.

I thoroughly enjoy connecting with my students and helping them to succeed in all aspects of learning. My belief is that they need to follow the paths that life affords them in order to choose a career, not just a job, that they can be passionate about.

All students have learning differences; that is, each student learns differently. It takes patience, caring, and the understanding of each student's strengths and weaknesses in order to help a child realize his or her full potential. My goal is to provide the methods necessary in order for each student to become a productive participant in his or her community.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am PA Certified in Elementary Education. I received my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Elementary Education certification in 1996 from Immaculata University. I returned to school to get certified when my sons were in elementary school and I was a classroom aide in their school. I saw the value of an educational foundation for each student. I am able to adapt to the learning style of each child, or adult learner, in able to help each one succeed. I did my student teaching in third grade and I substituted in every grade which gave me an overview of every age and their learning capabilities. I now teach students who are at-risk for dropping out of school. I am able to tailor the curriculum to make it engaging and applicable to each student's learning style. I am proud to say that the success rate and graduation rate is high for these students. I love my work and develop a life-long love of learning and reading for these youth.

I have developed various strategies to assist learning for my son and students with ADD and ADHD. I worked on IEPs for students with ADD/ADHD for the past 15 years. I also teach and tutor students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD utilizing strategies which work best for each student.

Wonderful tutor

Anita is so fantastic. She is wonderful and patient with my 5 yr old who has a rare visual disability. She has the perfect temperament to work with special needs children, or any child that is easily distracted. We Recommend her highly!
