Areas of Expertise:
I taught for 8.5 years as an elementary, bilingual teacher in Milwaukee, with 4 years at a community school and 4.5 years in the Milwaukee Public Schools. I was the assistant director of a five-city national, student drop-out study sponsored by the Aspira organization out of Washington, D.C. Following these experiences, I taught at Alverna College for several years, serving as the Bilingual Coordinator. While at Alverno, I taught courses in bilingual education and reading methods.
I am an outside consultant for several urban schools in Milwaukee, some dealing with assessment portfolios, others dealing with Reads and Reading First Grants, and others with literacy development in bilingual educational settings. I have published books and articles on these topics.
