I am a certified Special Education Teacher K-12 and I am endorsed in Learning Disabilities, Emotionally Disturbed, and have an endorsement in General Education K-3. I am currently instructing in a public school and work with students that are in fourth and fifth grade. We work collaboratively as well as utilizing small group and one-on-one instruction.
I am very goal oriented and carefully select and adapt teaching materials that increase student performance and love for learning.

I have tutored throughout my teaching and I enjoy getting to know my students.

I feel I have helped students successfully understand concepts that were difficult for them to understand...Fractions and Decimals.

I use a combination of word reading, comprehension skills, and fluency training.

My students have performed well on their SOL testing, receiving passing and advanced proficiency.

I have been teaching special education for many years and keep my certificate up, along with attending ongoing instruction to improve my teaching.

Teachers who love teaching...teach children to love learning.
