Education Coaches

DSAHV is a great network of resources and friends, and I am so grateful for their support through the years. I volunteer with DSAHV as an education coach/consultant. I am a certified k-12 educator with over 20 years teaching experience and I have been trained as an IEP coach. I invite you to contact me if you have questions about your child’s education, and I will help you find the answers and resources you seek.In the near future, I plan on doing workshops and topic based discussion groups. Check our website for postings.
