What do like most about your job at CDS? "I love that our school makes truly knowing our students and understanding their learning profiles a top priority for teachers. With that knowledge we are better able to provide the environment and instruction to engage our students in deeper, effective, and more meaningful learning."
What interesting background, training, etc. do you bring to your position? "My daughter is dyslexic, and it was my desire to understand how to help her that originally led me to become an Orton-Gillingham tutor. I know firsthand the frustrations and struggles that our Key School parents have gone through in the search for answers for their children. This personal connection drives me to listen empathetically to parents' concerns and be proactive in communicating about their student's progress."
