Wendy has taught in many different learning environments throughout her diverse career as an educator. A certified elementary and early childhood teacher, she has accrued extensive classroom experience.

Wendy has been fortunate to have the beach, the forest, lakes and streams, an agriculture museum, several farms, and day and overnight camps as her classrooms over the many years she has taught pre-school through high school students in these beautiful places.
Currently, Wendy works as an education consultant specializing in vision-related learning problems, metacognition, and environmental education. As a proponent of innovation and creativity in the field of education, she has written articles and developed numerous curriculum resources on a wide range of educational topics. Wendy facilitates professional development workshops for teachers, child study team personnel, administrators, and child development specialists about vision-related learning problems, and lectures widely on this subject.
