I hold my MS in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College at Boston University, and I am professionally certified in Early Childhood, Moderate Disabilities, English as a Second Language, and Sheltered English Immersion in the state of Massachusetts. I have over ten years of teaching experience at the early childhood level in a wide variety of racially, ethnically, linguistically, and neurologically diverse settings--lab, private, public, home-based, non-profit, co-op, and virtual--throughout the Greater Boston area. In October of 2023, I completed additional training as a reading instructor through the Ignite Reading Science of Reading Certification Program. I am currently employed as a reading tutor during traditional public schools hours, providing one-on-one phonics lessons to students in grades 1 through 8.

As co-founder of the National SEED Project Emily Style so adeptly summarized in her 1988 essay "Curriculum as Window and Mirror", curriculum should function "both as window and as mirror, in order to reflect and reveal most accurately both a multicultural world and the student herself or himself". This means that it is intrinsically important for ALL educators--including those who may not be members of a marginalized group themselves--to expose every student, regardless of their personal identity markers, to a multiplicity of cultures and ways of being in the world. To ensure that I am up to this crucial task, I have continuously pursued and successfully completed the following graduate-level coursework related to multicultural, multilingual, inclusive, and antiracist instruction over the past seven years: 

* Racial and Cultural Identities-Wheelock College at Boston University
* Introduction to Inclusive Early Childhood Education Settings-Wheelock College at Boston University
* Effective Sheltered English Instruction: Second Language Acquisition-Wheelock College at Boston University
* Impact of Special Needs: Early Childhood-Wheelock College at Boston University
* Mathematical Learning for Diverse Learners-Wheelock College at Boston University 
* Becoming a More Equitable Educator: Mindsets and Practices-Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
I hold professional licensure in Moderate Disabilities from PreK-8th grade, and have extensive experience implementing instructional supports for a wide variety of neurotypes. Feel free to reach out with any specific concerns or requests!
Familiarity with practicing sight words in the English language, though not required, will provide students with the base they need to comfortably participate in this class.
