Although the first half of my career was spent overseeing public relations/marketing departments for various organizations, my heart compel-led me to transition into teaching/tutoring/coaching kids of all ages. I truly have never been more personally or professionally happy, now that I spend my days empowering kids to realize their greatest potential academically and athletically! Currently, I am a Literacy Tutor at a local elementary school where, because of Covid, I also help tutor math/writing, and I have tutored . We were fortunate to implement the Heggerty and Lexia programs into our Literacy tutoring starting last fall, so I am proficient with both. I've also been a substitute teacher in the Glastonbury schools (K-5) for nearly four years and have also been a youth soccer and tennis coach. Additionally, I am currently enrolled in a joint Master of Arts/CT Teaching Certification program. I can provide excellent references from local teachers for whom I have worked.
