I am a Literacy Specialist and I love working with students to develop reading and writing skills and abilities. My instruction is based on research and effective practices. I have a MA Education and I am a certified Literacy Specialist with English Learner Authorization. I have lived and taught internationally for the past 10 years. Last year, 44% of my students were reading below grade level at the beginning of school, and by the end of the year, 66% were reading above grade level expectations! I want to know your child's interests, motivations, strengths, areas for growth, and how your child learns best. Knowing where your child is and what you and your child's goals are will help us make an effective plan for success!
I am flexible.
I train, coach and mentor teachers!
I LOVE teaching!
