My B.S degree with a K-2 certification from Wheelock College (now part of Boston University) as well as a M.A. degree with a focus in Theater Education from Emerson College led me to a career that has provided me over 30 years of experience working with children and students from Pre-K through High School. During this time I have worked in a variety of capacities including Lead Teacher, Daycare Director, and SAT tutor. I have a significant background not only in education, but also in theatre, and I have often used theater in the classroom to enhance my students’ understanding of material while keeping the curriculum creative, interactive, and exciting. It has always been my goal to make learning as fun as possible, and I have been developing games and activities that help students stay engaged and committed to their online learning and online tutoring. I have worked in both public and private schools, and I have spent the past 10 years teaching and assisting with students who represent a variety of abilities and needs in grades Pre-K – 5 including children with ADHD, executive functioning disorder, children on the autism spectrum, as well as children with gifted intelligence. My teaching style adapts to meet the needs of my students, and they respond very positively to my patience and understanding. My calm but friendly demeanor puts students at ease, and my enthusiasm to teach and commitment to their learning inspires them to try.
