I am a retired certified teacher with 43 years of experience teaching Early Childhood and grades Pre-Kindergarten through High School.  25 years of my teaching experience were in the areas of Reading and Writing. I am also a trained Dyslexia Specialist as well as a Reading Specialist.  My ultimate goal for each child whom I work with is for them to become successful, not only in school, but throughout their life.  To accomplish this goal, I know that everyone can learn when they are taught the way their brain learns the best and when they feel successful.  Therefore, I stress multisensory learning when I work with my students.  I also believe that everyone needs to know when they are doing well and making progress, so positive reinforcement is critical.  Reading and Writing can be very concerning activities for children who are challenged by them.  I look forward to continue helping children overcome those challenges and enjoy participating in them.
