How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
My philosophy has always been from the very beginning, every student can learn, not on the same day or in the same way! I believe as an educator, our role is to create an unwavering foundation for all students. For me, my expertise lies in the foundation of reading. Through diagnosis and understanding of a student’s strengths and challenges, a plan for success can be created. The diversity of my teaching experience has strengthened the aforementioned philosophy!
Saxophone, music, reading, yoga, traveling, missions, time with family.
