Since beginning my tenure at St. John’s University, I have had the distinct pleasure of working with doctoral students in literacy in Queens and working with New York City Teaching Fellows…some of the best educators in the world!

Over the past 12+ years of teaching at the university level, I have taught a variety of courses in literacy, C&I, and elementary/early childhood (see below for a listing).

Children are never too young to join us in the learning process!
