Class Experience

I am a dedicated and creative literacy specialist with 20+ years experience working with students of all ages. I teach a popular series of courses on Outschool called Vocabulary Building with Latin and Greek Roots and Affixes, which extends through five levels. As a language buff, I’ve studied Italian, Spanish, German, Latin, and a bit of French. 

I hold permanent certification from New York State in Reading (grades K-12). I am also a certified Wilson Reading System dyslexia practitioner. I have extensive experience with Orton-Gow methods for literacy re/mediation; the foundation for that work was the introductory training I received through the Gow Teacher Training Institute. I taught Orton-Gow (Reconstructive Language) at the Gow School and the Gow School Summer Program for several years. Across the past decade, as a teacher educator and university reading center director, I helped to prepare several hundred reading teachers and literacy specialists in NY and PA. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at The Catholic University of America School of Music. My doctoral and master’s degrees were earned at the University at Buffalo School of Education, under the advisement of Dr. Michael W. Kibby, a nationally known literacy diagnostician and scholar.  I have presented my research at several national and international conferences, including Literacy Research Association, International Reading Association, and International Dyslexia Association.
Approximately one hour of homework is assigned each week, involving written exercises and conversational practice designed to foster memorization. Some of these exercises will be in the textbooks and others will be designed by the instructor.
