Ms. Costa

Mindy Costa began her teaching career in Merrick, New York. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York, and a Master's Degree in Special Education from that same institution. She has also been formally trained by the Orton Dyslexia Society of New York, and holds a Certificate in Orton-Gillingham Instruction. Mindy became affiliated with the Kentwood Program and philosophy in 1994, when she relocated from New York to South Florida with her family. She has years of experience working with children whose various learning difficulties have hampered their ability to be successful learners. Since with the Kentwood "family", she has held the positions of classroom teacher, homeschool teacher, tutor, and curriculum coordinator and programmer for our Learning Lab.

My name is Mindy Costa, and I am pleased to, once again, be a part of the Kentwood Family. I have known, and been affiliated with the school administration for more than twenty years. My role here at Kentwood is that of the coordinator and head teacher of the Learning Lab. Aside from teaching, part of my role includes preparing, modifying, and implementing curriculum for students who require alternative methodologies for success, based upon their particular learning styles. A bit about me: I was born and raised in New York. I have my Bachelor'sDegree in Elementary /education, and my Master's Degree in Special Ed. I have also been formally trained by the Orton Dyslexia Society, and hold a Certificate in Orton-Gillingham Instruction. I have been teaching since the 1980's, and relocated to South Florida in 1994. I live in Boynton Beach with my husband, Phil. We have two grown daughters, and an amazing 14 year old grandson. I'm looking forward to another fabulous year at Kentwood!
