Quote of Personal Interest
The woods are lovely dark and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep.
Areas of Research/Scholarly Activity
My areas of interest are reading disability, bilingual special education and students who have a hard time learning to read, write, spell, listen, and those who have difficulty with comprehension. Also, my areas of interest are in direct instruction which is a systematic and explicit way to teach students who are having difficulty learning to read, write, spell and do math calculations that require reading. I have written and researched each of these areas and most especially the area of reading disabilities.
