Experience in Field

Since graduating from New England College in 2013, Jen has worked as a special educator in the public schools while completing her Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Elementary Reading. During this time, she discovered her love for teaching reading to students with dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities. 

What are you learning now?

I’m currently working toward my IMSE Orton-Gillingham (OG) Specialist Certification. I love bringing words to life for students who struggle with reading, and OG provides the opportunity for real growth with its multi-sensory approach. I find that even with my most challenging students, I can find ways to help them participate and get excited about learning.
