I work with students on letter recognition, letter sounds, and reading comprehension. I am highly qualified to teach all aspects or reading including phonics.


Special Needs

I am a certificated K-8 teacher and have a masters degree in Special Education cross categorical. I have worked in Seattle Schools for the last 14 years. During this time I have worked in an Asperger Inclusion program at John Rogers elementary. I have also worked for three years in a kindergarten inclusion program that served special education students as well as regular education students. Many of the special education students had autism. For the last six years I have worked in a self-contained special ed classroom with students who have moderate to severe autism as well as other disorders. Subjects I have worked with students on include academics such as reading, writing, fine motor skills, math and science. I also worked on social skills. Recently I've worked with older students on vocational tasks such as sweeping floors, folding laundry and simple sorting or assembly skills. I have worked with individual students as well as small groups and larger groups. I began working with students with autism in 1983. Besides autism I have worked with students with Downs and other chromosomal abnormalities. I have tutored students with ADHD, Dyspraxia and other learning disabilities. I began tutoring while I was still in high school over 30 years ago.

I have a masters degree in special education cross categorical. I will be starting my 15th school year with Seattle Public Schools where I work with special education students, many of whom have ADHD. I help them with organization skills and focusing skills in order to make their learning more successful.


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have a Masters Degree in Special Education Cross Categorical and will be starting my 15th year straight working in special education.

Many students I have worked with have had dyslexia. I worked for an entire school year working with a third grade girl with dyslexia. She was a non-reader when we began working together, but through a lot of patience and having her sound out words and read them out loud, she was reading at a high first grade level by the end of the school year, amazing all her teachers. I am highly qualified to teach students with dyslexia.
