As a lifelong educator, I know the importance of getting the assistance needed to perform well in school. I enjoy working with students on a variety of subjects and love getting to know what best motivates students to learn. I have taught at the elementary level, as well as the university level. My education includes a B.S. in Multidisciplinary Studies with a 1st-8th grade teacher certificate, M.S. in Special Education and licensing as an educational diagnostician, and Ed.D. in Special Education and Reading including a Reading Specialist professional educator certificate.
In my free time, I love reading and spending time with my own children.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Supporting students as they first learn new and/or difficult topics is imperative; however, that support is gradually lifted as students gain proficiency and demonstrate confidence in each new skill.
