I also bring a background of experiential education from 20 years with Expeditionary Learning and New York City Outward Bound.

I have taught as a special education teacher and reading specialist for a total of 10 years with all ages: 5-18 in Denver, Colorado and New York City. I also bring a background of experiential education from 20 years with Expeditionary Learning and New York City Outward Bound. I can create a specially designed curriculum for my students to both empower and maximize learning potential. I believe that we are all capable of learning anything and it will be my pleasure to find the best and most effective way possible for that to happen.

I have spent the past 2 years in a Title I elementary school in Denver, Colorado as both a special education teacher and learning specialist. In that time, typically, my students have made one years' growth, but more than 50% have made 2 years' of growth in reading and mathematics. I have excellent recommendations from my principal and my colleagues.

I can effectively analyze data as well as administer screeners to determine the best path for instruction for students with autism, significant learning disabilities, dyslexia and ADD. More importantly, I can differentiate and modify general education work to suit the needs of my students. I have extensive experience with reading instruction in many different modalities in phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, fluency and elementary mathematics.

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you shine. It is my passion and I will go to no end to ensure that learning happens.

Special Needs

As a both a special education teacher and a reading specialist, I can specially assess and design instruction to meet the specific needs of all individuals. My most recent experience has been teaching K-6 , 6-8 reading and special education in both Denver, Colorado and Beaufort County, SC. I have taught and empowered both children and adults with ADHD in an effort to work with their special ability, not against it. Currently, in my classroom, we have alternative seating, like rocking chairs, yoga balls and even a trampoline to accommodate students with ADHD. My students with ADHD are currently thriving and it shows in their data. They have made significant growth in just a short period of time. My students with IEP's have made growth a minimum off 1 year and more in reading, math and writing. This includes both phonics and comprehension. I have references I can provide for you as well as my evaluations. I hope to help your child blossom into an empowered student in whatever subject area.
