Meet Elisa Romero
I lean into my 20 plus years
of experience as a learning specialist and special education teacher in the K-12 setting. I added a second Master’s degree, in School Counseling to my first in Special Education, and am a member with the Independent Educational Consultants Association.
College Planning & Advising
What is the perfect college for your student? I love helping plan for and uncovering this answer alongside my students, and then arming them with the tools and confidence to transition successfully to college. Such a mentoring relationship helps both the student and their parents.
To be a trusted guide, I continually investigate post-high school options with an eye for students with learning differences. My lens is always focused on whether a student will have the support system academically, emotionally, and socially to be a successful college student.
I also help children ages K-12 to re-find joy in learning. I do this by helping them understand the magnificence of how their specific brains work. Through educational therapy, I create an individualized tool kit designed to remediate a learning disability or any other learning challenges. By asking direct questions and role-playing with older students and using games and drawing with younger ones, I allow them to teach me their reality: Where they become frustrated, what that looks like, where they succeed.
