I am a CT State certified elementary and special education teacher with close to 20 years experience. I support struggling students and those diagnosed with attention deficit, ASD, dyslexia, executive functioning and other learning disabilities through multi-sensory and individualized instruction. I have taught grades K through 5 in public and private schools in Greenwich, Stamford and Westchester Co. My undergraduate degree from Penn State University was in theater, so my instruction is infused with a great deal of creativity. I have taught theater, dance and art and created an cooking program that makes learning math, reading, writing, science and social studies fun while also giving kids crucial life skills in planning, team work, nutrition and safety.
I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham reading method from the IMSE and now work as a special education teacher at the high school level.
