Dr. Candelaria Greene holds an MA and PhD in Special Education, and teaching credentials in Regular and Special Education (Preschool through Adult). She has also received certification as a Certificated Learning Specialist for the California Community College System.
Inspired by the belief that every student brings gifts to the learning environment, Dr. Candelaria Greene's research and writing has focused attention on effective educational practices, literacy, multilingualism, and the effects of the environment and of health on learning ability and academic success. In her efforts to promote increased awareness on the latter, she recently completed a two-year tenure as a Visiting Researcher Scholar (UC Berkeley), where she investigated the effects of Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome on learning and behavior. Results of this research can be found in the seminal work: PANS, CANS, and Automobiles: A Comprehensive Reference Guide for Helping Students with PANDAS and PANS, (First Edition Publishing, 2016).
