My name is Caryn. I’m an early childhood educator. I have Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and my Professional License for teaching pre-school through third grade. I have 27 years experience as an educator. I have taught kindergarten, as well as first and second grades in Public School, with experience working with all age groups.  As a classroom teacher, I have been trained in various reading programs and the implementation of many literacy assessments. I am trained in Orton-Gillingham-based instruction and Dyscalculia  intervention for all age groups. I also have the Massachusetts Sheltered English Immersion Endorsement. 
     In 2014, I branched out independently providing individual academic support to students ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade in phonemic awareness, reading comprehension and fluency, writing, and math fluency.  I also teach a variety of classes to homeschool students, such as American Girl History, literature, and math classes. 
     I love that I am able to expand my services and share my classes with Outschool families around the world! I look forward to meeting yo!
