Reading

I hold a professional license from the state of Massachusetts in the following areas: K-8, Special Needs (Audition- all levels). I have a strong background in language which is the foundation for developing reading skills. I have many years of experience working with students on targeted reading skills allowing them to become successful, confident readers.

I am a professionally licensed K-8 teacher in the state of MA. I also hold a professional license as a teacher of special needs (audition - all levels). I am experienced teacher who has spent a career working with students in the area of writing. Writing is an important life skill. I meet the student where he or she is at in the writing process, and build his or her confidence. I can help a student polish a rough draft or I can help a student start a piece of writing from scratch.

I am a professionally licensed K-8 teacher, as well as a professionally licensed teacher of students with special needs (audition-all levels) in the state of MA. I have been a classroom teacher for over 30 years with a focus on English Language Arts. I am presently the Director of Curriculum and Instruction in a private special needs school. I am very familiar with the Curriculum Frameworks.


Elementary (K-6th)

I have more than 25 years of successful experience as a K-8 teacher working with students with additional learning needs. I am familiar with, and comfortable teaching the content for subjects at this level based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. I provide engaging lessons geared to the individual needs of the student.


Special Needs

I am a professionally licensed special needs teacher in the state of Massachusetts with more than 25 years of experience. I have worked with students in all grade levels. I am highly skilled at assessing the needs of the student, and then providing meaningful lessons based on that need. My goal is to support the student with instruction that allows him or her to meet with success.


Sign Language

I am an experienced teacher of students who are deaf or hard of hearing, and use ASL (American Sign Language) to instruct and communicate with them. I also use ASL to communicate with deaf adults who work at the school. I have taken many classes in ASL to maintain my proficiency, and would be comfortable teaching this language to others.


Hard of Hearing

I am an experienced teacher of students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. I have worked with D/HH students in public school settings as well as in private school settings. I am comfortable individualizing content to meet the specific language/learning needs of the child. My goal is for the child to understand the language of the material involved in order to meet with success.
