Professional Experience:

Over the last three decades, I have worked with children in a variety of unique settings.  At the beginning of my career (before I was a credentialed teacher), some of these settings were somewhat challenging and included a private residential school for developmentally-disabled students with severe learning and behavioral problems - the Devereux School.  Later, when my focus shifted towards becoming a classroom teacher, I worked in a variety of different public schools- first as a teaching assistant (one year in middle school and one 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 eight 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 the private homes of my students.  All of these rich and varied professional experiences have significantly contributed to my development as a teacher for students both with and without learning differences.
