"I am a former middle school English teacher. I have a Bachelor's degree in English as well as a Masters in Teaching. I have experience tutoring students one on one. I have create individualized lesson plans for students. My students have seen significant growth in reading ability and test scores. I also have a minor in music and have 20 years of vocal music experience. I am an experienced choral singer. I have sang in numerous countries around the world from the Marktoberdorf Competition in Marktoberdorf, Germany as well as the summit of choirs in Havana, Cuba and other International Choral festivals. Currently, I am a data evaluator for the Compassionate Schools Project. I administer a series of standardized measurements that foster the development of a mindfulness curriculum currently implemented by the YouthNex Program of the University of Virginia in more than 50 schools in Louisville, KY.

I have a degree in English as well three years of experience teaching English. I am an avid reader and read several books a day. I have written numerous documents in undergrad and graduate school.
