Professional Experience:


Over the last two decades, I have worked with children in a variety of unique settings. In the beginning of my career (before I was a credentialed teacher), some of these settings were rather challenging, and included the adolescent unit of a psychiatric hospital and a private residential school for developmentally-disabled students with severe learning and behavioral problems. Later, when my focus shifted towards becoming a classroom teacher, I worked in a variety of different public schools- first as a teaching assistant (1 year in middle school and 1 year in high school) and then as a substitute teacher. I received my teaching credential in 1999 and went on to teach in the classroom for 8 years: elementary (4 yrs.), middle school (2 yrs.), and high school (2 yrs.). I have also worked for private schools, in a private clinical setting, in my own office, and in the private homes of my students. All of these rich and varied professional experiences have contributed greatly to my development as a teacher for students both with and without learning differences.
