My goal with "Rare Tumor" community (diagnosis: low grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm) is to educate people through my experiences, challenges, and recovery from a tumor diagnosis in my cecum and appendix during a colonoscopy procedure. Interesting moments here in the hospital at Mt. Sinai that I'll look to capture include review of family history, treatment, pain management, recovery path, receiving the diagnosis, taking the prognosis home, and my feelings and concerns all along the way. You'll note from my photo that I also intend on adding as much comedy and creativity as possible. To me that's a staple in any community on or offline.
Eagle Hill-Southport is a co-educational day school designed for bright, capable students, ages 6-14, who are experiencing academic difficulties because of a language-based learning disability. The school offers these children a chance to develop a foundation of academic competence and enhances their self-esteem.
Twice-daily tutorial sessions form the core of our academic program. Each student receives small-group, Orton-Gillingham instruction. Our diagnostic teaching model ensures that every child receives prescriptive remediation and skill building in all primary areas of need.
Small classes allow students to access curriculum at their ability level in each subject. Our teachers reinforce skills developed in tutorial class and provide strategies and study skills that maximize each child's learning potential.
