In 2020, I left the classroom (at Choate Rosemary Hall) and founded ReadWriteStart. With a creative, collaborative approach, I work with students on their reading and writing skills.
I believe that students find success in safe, positive learning environments. I aim to personalize every session in order to meet the needs of the student and also to focus on areas in which the student has the potential to improve.
I believe that the more compassionate adults there are in a child's life, the more successful the student will be.
After twenty years working with young people, I firmly believe that even the brightest students need support. I've devoted my career to making sure students are seen, validated, and inspired.
These beliefs depict the the values and pedagogy at the core of ReadWriteStart.
