About Daybreak Learning

At Daybreak Learning I use the Multisensory Structured Language Approach to work with everyone from young children to adults. This type of instruction is appropriate for all types of learners, including those with Dyslexia or other special needs.

I am a NESA registered teacher with a B.S. in Elementary Education/Specific Learning Disabilities from Florida Southern College and a Graduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Deakin University. I have a wide variety of experience in teaching literacy. I started my career working with children with learning disabilities in the U.S. Then I worked with homeschooling missionaries in Africa and was the Learning Assistance Teacher in an international school in PNG. Since then I have provided learning support to students with special needs in a variety of contexts in mainstream education here in Australia. I also have experience working with English Language Learners, and I had the privilege of working with Yolngu students in Arnhem Land for a few years.

I completed an intensive training with the Institute for Multisensory Structured Language Education in 2021 to learn the MSL approach . I then went on to complete the practicum requirements so that I can become accredited with the Australian Dyslexia Association. I have been implementing the MSL approach with students since 2021.

I endeavour to use my experience and training to be a blessing to my community and to also work with students online, especially those from remote, disadvantaged backgrounds.
