myvocabulary 

I am especially interested in literacy and vocabulary development. I am the co-creator and publisher of MyVocabulary.com. Our website has 2,500 pages of free, interactive vocabulary puzzles, word games and word lists that feature Latin and Greek root-based vocabulary at grade levels. Our focus is to improve student decoding skill and promote better reading comprehension. I am fluent in French as a result of living in Switzerland for 6 years including high school. After undergrad and graduate school at Northwestern (BA and MAT), I taught at Evanston Township High School (IL) and Lexington High School (MA.) In California, I taught at two Middle Schools and Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton (CA) for 12 years. I enjoy tutoring French, English and History.
