TEACHING EXPERIENCE

2003-2005 Educational Therapist 2005-2010 Curriculum Advisor / Coordinator of an IB School 2007-CURRENT Homeschool/Afterschool

MY TEACHING STYLE

In 2003, I graduated from SUNY Brockport with a dual degree in English and a Secondary Education. Upon graduation, I worked at a private learning center under the direction of an Educational Therapist/Psychologist and learned a lot about how the brain rewires itself and is continually changing. It is there that I decided to get training in Balametrics, different methods of cognitive skills training and became proficient in administering Brigance Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills, Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and the Detroit Test of Learning Aptitude. I enjoyed testing and preparing a personalized learning plan for the students that I tutored 1:1. The work I do, the resources I create rely heavily on a brain-based approach.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

The educational landscape is changing. We are moving away from what most of us knew as the traditional classroom and moving into a more digitally enhanced learning environment. The role of teachers is changing from the ones with the knowledge and information to the one who plans and facilitates learning opportunities. This takes a different skill than what was expected of teachers before. My mission is supporting educators to help their students thrive. By integrating meaningful technology, problem-based learning, and implementing differentiating/personalized learning strategies, I help students gain the confidence to succeed in learning and life.
