My sincere affection for young people has inspired me to give of myself to ensure the highest possible output from children. Children should be stimulated to take risks in the learning environment; creative expression and high levels of thinking should be encouraged. I graduated from the University at Buffalo with a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education. My Masters degree work is in Reading Education. My past experiences has ranged from tutoring students aged 5 to 18 in reading, writing, phonics, history all grade levels and some SAT prep. My classroom experiences range from Special Education classrooms with children aged 5-15, Social Studies grades 5 - 12 and Reading teacher grades K-8. My hobbies are reading, knitting and lots of sports! Love to enjoy my children's sporting events and being outside in nice weather!
