I received my Bachelor of Arts from Case Western Reserve University in Humanities with a focus on literature and drama, my Masters from Bank Street College of Education in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, and my Doctorate from Columbia University, Teachers College in Curriculum and Instruction. I am teacher certified in Nursery-Grade 6 and have completed the Orton Gillingham training in reading instruction. Additionally, I studied writing at The Vermont College Program for Writing for Children and Young Adults. An educator for over 35 years, I have been a classroom teacher; university professor; curriculum consultant; learning specialist; and tutor, working with preschoolers through adults. “Differentiating’ instruction based on “alternative” assessments, I work with students with dyslexia, ADD/ADHD and Aspergers’ Syndrome as well as with “gifted” students. I am adept at recognizing both “I don’t have a clue.” and “getting it.” I bring passion to discovering which of the varied approaches, activities, and materials help my students move from “no clue..” to “got it.” Areas of expertise, with emphasis on the interactive nature of concept development and skill acquisition, include early reading and math; all levels and content areas of language arts; executive functioning skills (time management and organizational skills), and aligning instruction with state and national learning standards. I have traveled extensively and have lived in Scotland and Belgium. Other interests include writing (for children), swimming, biking, cooking, reading, and music.
