My Story - Main Page

I see myself as an educator and a coach, and I care deeply about my students and their families. I strive to know my students well and believe that my work with them does not stop at an acceptance. I have built my entire practice on goals dedicated to bringing out the best in my students and helping them find their unique attributes and personal narratives.
