April Saylor holds a California Clear Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential as well as a Mild/Moderate Special Education Credential. She currently works as a Resource Specialist for a local Santa Clarita school district. Here she works with students, teachers, and parents of children with mild to moderate learning challenges to close in academic gaps in English Language Arts and Math. Besides helping students master needed academic skills, April’s passion is to help students gain confidence in their abilities and take risks and ownership of what they need to do to be academically successful for themselves.
Mrs. Saylor has taught twenty five years in both the general education classroom and in special education as a Resource Specialist. She has taught and currently teaches grades first through sixth. Being well versed in the California State Standards across the curriculum, and knowing the scope and sequence for developmentally teaching these standards in English Language Arts and Math is also an area of expertise.
She loves working with parents and their children in a team approach. Her goal is to help elementary students grow and master skills and standards that had previously been areas of difficulty. April strongly believes when teachers, parents, and students work together on educational goals, students will achieve.
April is available for working one-on-one or with a small group on bridging the gap between where your child is functioning and reaching their academic potential. She will also share with you techniques and strategies to use at home as your child progresses toward grade level. She is available weekdays in the late afternoons and evenings as well as some Saturdays. After June 10th she will take appointments for summer in mornings and early afternoons as well.
