I am an American-trained speech/language pathologist who worked for many years as a specialist for hard-to-diagnose learning disabled children in New York. Currently,I am the creator and director of Inglese Dinamico, an English teaching project located in Venice, Italy and President and co-founder of Partnerships for Learning and Teaching (non-profit), an educational project dedicated to research and development of best teaching practices with special emphasis on challenged learners and dyslexia and also cross-cultural/multi-lingual integration across multiple subjects. Begun in 2012, I am spear-heading a project, The Collaborative Learning Center Initiative, Venice, Italy, to bring private funds, social activism and educational practices together to provide a dynamic learning community for privileged and disenfranchised children and adults. Visit the (email hidden) to learn more about my work. The project is developing "The Generation Rising" -- young, Italians who are learning the value of social activism and community organizing as they strive to use a global language to be a part of a global community.
Our home on the Vineyard is a special place for guests who wish to enjoy the beauty and vitality of this incredible island. Instead of just 'the playground for the rich and famous," the Vineyard is a microcosm of America -- its strengths and weaknesses. Come and be a part of it! Until 2011, I hosted international students through my project. But, having enjoyed the guests who brought the world to my doorstep since 2010, I am now only hosting Airbnb guests as I enter my 5th year of hosting. And now, I'm able to share my beautiful home in an historic area of Venice with you! Please visit Spectacular Affordable Venice! Please come to this magical, historically significant city!
