The opportunity to rise from teacher to supervisor was facilitated and substantiated by data which provided evidence of my ability to achieve and sustain learning progress for both students and educational staff. Critical to this success was the ability to determine the methodologies necessary to identify and utilize individual learning strengths to meet learning targets not achieve in routine classroom instruction and close the learning gaps which widen yearly.

The proficiency in diagnosing and accommodating learning uniqueness was developed by pursuing and training in research based programs which addressed all kinds of minds and how best to maximize those skills effectively. Special interest in Attention Deficit issues and Dyslexia also inspired my to pursue and become certified in programs formatted around Ortin-Gillingham multi-sensory instructional strategies and subsequently made me uniquely qualified to be an adjunct professor of Education at Queens College, Educational Consultant to principals and administrators in NYC and as the NYS juvenile justice system and trainer for the Wilson Language Reading Program.

My goal now is to provide one-on-one interventions which will inspire confidence and efficacy for student learning" less...
