Personal Information

Teaching Philosophy / Personal Statement:
I believe every student can learn according to their potential. In Developmental Reading I begin with each individual student and access strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their reading. I also test for dyslexia and other reading disabilities and teach the strategies needed to cope with the reading disability. The next step is to place each individual student in the correct reading course and provide the reading skills and strategies to become a successful reader and student. My office door is always open to present and previous students.
