To Parents: I understand my students because I’m one of them; I just got bigger.
To Students: I speak parent, but I'm not "one of them."
My students appreciate that I “get” them like few adults do. I manage my own dyslexia and ADHD every day. Through these experiences, I developed personal strategies, attitude adjustments, and patience for overcoming internal and external adversity. These deeply personal struggles qualify me to uniquely understand and relate to my students through shared experiences. From this, I created a system that our staff successfully uses on a daily basis with a wide variety of student abilities.
