I’ve been an educator for 29 years EC-12. I spent 12 years in elementary settings and 14 at the secondary level. My areas of expertise are as a reading specialist for students with dyslexia and other reading disorders and English as a second language. In the winter of 2019, I decided to leave the brick-and-mortar classroom to a virtual setting. It was the best decision I ever made! I moved to Galveston Island, Texas after my daughter graduated from high school in 2020. Now I teach privately and with different ESL and tutoring companies in the US and Mainland China. My hobbies are open water swimming, beach combing, reading, writing, mixed media art, and playing with my 2 dogs.
