What inspires my work with students:

  • I am dedicated to spending my career helping students overcome reading disabilities and develop a love of reading. Every child must be offered the opportunity to learn and expand on his/her unique value to become successful learners and thriving future adults. I believe strongly that every child has the capacity and desire to learn, and it is my job to meet each student in that unique “place” where he/she learns best. It is a privilege to come to work and spend my days doing what I love, Every day, it is a joy to see students learning, building character and resilience, and becoming more confident with each new success!
