I am a Certified Special Education teacher with more than 16 years of experience in Education. I started my career in New York City as an Early Childhood Special Education in preschool classrooms throughout Queens. From there, I went on to become an Instructional Coach mentoring and supporting teachers in the classroom to use best practices.

Currently, I work exclusively as a Virtual Dyslexia Interventionist. My students range from grades 1-7 all of whom have been diagnosed with Dyslexia or other Reading Disabilities.

Since 2018, I have completed intensive training in the Science of Reading and Structured Literacy Instruction, including the Orton Gillingham method. My practice is devoted exclusively to students in grades Kindergarten-8th who require significant support with reading and spelling.

As a Certified Special Education Teacher I have years of experience working with neurodivergent students with a variety of diagnoses.
