Educational Background:

I have been trained in the Lindamood Bell Language Processing Programs and utilize the LIPS, Seeing Stars, and Visualizing & Verbalizing Programs widely in private my teaching. I  have completed numerous educational assessments while working in the public schools and in educational therapy.

More About Me

My husband and I are “semi-retired” and own a home on the Eagle Point Golf Course where I have my resource room.  Over the years I have taught thousands of kids, a great many with multiple handicaps.  Besides helping struggling students, my passions are horses and animals of all kinds, gardening, and…golf.  I have worked closely with kids, families and schools for many years, and have a long track record of getting significant results quickly.  Please feel free to check with any of the many parents, teachers, and administrator with whom I have worked.

As a part of applying for my Oregon credentials I underwent a background check through the Oregon State Police and I did the same last year since I volunteered in the Smart Reading Program at our local elementary school.
