Jamie Lubov is an Educational Specialist at Sutcliffe DBP. She grew up in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, and later completed her bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Psychology at Indiana University, and her master’s degree and teaching credential at the University of San Francisco.
Before discovering her love of education, she spent several years in the IT and marketing industries, and finally, working in Human Resources. However, there always seemed to be something missing: the element of helping others. She participated in an “ulpan” program in Israel, where she learned Hebrew and was assigned a job at an elementary school. There, she quickly discovered her love for supporting children with learning and behavioral differences.
She has taught at non-public, charter, and public schools and worked with children with a variety of diagnoses:
- Physical/medical disabilities (e.g., Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), etc.)
- Mental health issues
- Cognitive and learning disabilities (e.g., AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyscalculia, Autism (ASD), Intellectual Disabilities, Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD/PDD-NOS), Asperger Syndrome, Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), Language Processing Disorder (LPD), Non-verbal Learning Disorder (NVLD), Visual Perceptual and Visual Motor Deficits, Executive Functioning issues, memory issues, etc.).
Jamie currently resides in San Jose, California with her roommate and their 3 cats, and enjoys dancing, gardening, camping and eating foreign foods.
