TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed 32 years of experience as an English teacher, tutor, educational business owner, special education teacher, reading specialist, diagnostician, and administrator. Currently I am the Academic Support Coordinator for a top high-achieving, highly-awarded K-12 Core Knowledge charter school in Fort Collins, CO.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Having basic skills is crucial…but more fun if it can be taught with a game and boiled down to simplicity, especially for those students with learning difficulties or those easily bored! ;-)
