Emily Shaw

Learning Specialist

As a recent transplant from New York City to Orlando, I am excited for the opportunity to apply my classroom teaching experience in my endeavors to support students one-on-one. I have a masters degree from Bank Street College of Education and certifications in childhood general, special, and bilingual education. I have worked in classroom settings for the past seven years, five of which I spent at a highly acclaimed school for students with dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities. While there, I was trained in a specific Orton-Gillingham based curriculum and became a true advocate for a multi-sensory approach to teaching. That being said, I am also passionate about getting to know each individual student and how to best customize his or her learning experience.  I enjoy bringing creativity into teaching and learning whenever possible. In my free time, you might find me baking, singing, or searching for an outdoor adventure (when it’s not too hot!)
