I love rainy days at Starbucks, black licorice, and smooth jazz. But most of all I love kids; all ages!
Uncovering their gifts gets me out of bed in the morning.
I’ve been a general education and special education teacher for more that 25 years, and right now I’m an educational therapist, a learning surgeon of sorts. I graduated from Brooklyn College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Theatre. My Master’s of Science Degree is from Cal Lutheran University Special Education and a minor in Mediated Learning.
I have a plethora of wallpaper: two special education credentials, one multicultural credential, one in general ed and a clean bill of health from breast cancer (1988).
While I am proud of these accomplishments, watching my students overcome the obstacles in their lives makes me purr.
