EducationMaster's in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on reading at University of Colorado, Boulder. Certified by the state of Colorado as an Elementary Teacher, Reading Teacher (K-12), and Linguistically Diverse Educator (K-12). TESL Certification (Teach English as a Second Language) for adults; Trained in the Yoshimoto Orton Gillingham for Dyslexia remediation
ExperienceAfter 7 years in the classroom, I started an educational services business (Read. Write. Speak., LLC) and have maintained a busy schedule for over four years. I love working with individuals and small groups. Helping people learn, especially struggling learners in reading and writing, and helping adults learn English are my passions. I have high expectations for students and work in an environment of mutual respect. My most recent training and studies are for people who have signs of dyslexia. Because the diagnosis is expensive, and because it can be genetic, many people spend their lives struggling with reading and writing
HobbiesI love to be outside, riding my bike and hiking and I almost always have some art or craft projects in process. I am also a musician. My primary instrument is the bass guitar but I also work at the cello. Growing up learning piano is my basis for this learning. I am an avid reader and am always interested in learning about new developments in how people learn and in English language acquisition, especially with regard to pronunciation. I am fascinated by the concept of creating muscle memory in the muscles of the brain and body to help kids and adults acquire new skills and information.
