As the Bilingual Special Education Specialist at the Long Island Parent Center at LIU Post, my purpose and commitment to improve outcomes for students with differing abilities lies in my dedication to provide parents and professionals tools to help them advocate for their students. I believe that all children can learn but each learns in a different way and at different rates.
I am passionate about collaboration and improving relationships between families, schools and communities. I recently became a certified Native American Parent Specialist through a Federal initiative where I was trained in cultural competency and offered direct assistance to Native American families living on reservations in the Southwest. Coupled with my commitment to improve outcomes for all students,I am currently a Doctoral student at Molloy College concentrating on social justice and Coordinator of Family and Community Affairs on the My Brother’s Keeper initiative in several Long Island districts. In addition I am Adjunct Professor at St. Joseph’s College in the Child Study Department.
My rich background and passion in education, psychology, and Spanish, combined with my role of mother to a child with a disability, help to foster solid connections with culturally diverse regions.
