I have 35 years of experience, and specialize in the field of education with specific knowledge in the areas of literacy, early childhood education and distance learning. I have published on such topics as feedback in the classroom, early childhoood reading and how parents can help their child become a better reader and writer. With 34 years of public school experience and 20 years of teaching at the university level I have much experience teaching at all levels. This would include as well the understanding of the learning habits of children and adults. My research has been in the fields of early childhood education (specifically reading), middle and secondary learning, and the effects of feedback on student progress at the college level.
