I have been teaching for 10 years. I taught 3 of those years in the Chicago area. I am now teaching in the very school that I attended as an elementary and high school student. It is exciting to be teaching the children of old classmates!
I integrate a lot of Differentiated Instruction in my daily lessons. I try to give my students as many choices in their final products as possible. I believe that all students learn differently and it is my job to give them the opportunity to perform at their best.
None. . . yet!
I completed my B.S. in Elementary Education at Northern Illinois University in December of 2001. I recently completed my M.A. in K-12 Technology Integration (online) with Nova Southeasern Univeristy in March 2010.
I have two wonderful sons, Cameron and Benny. Cameron has just begun Kindergarten (in the same school I teach, so he is right down the hall from me all day) and Benny is in Early Step Preschool. (this is also held in the building I teach in) I have a wonderful husband named Eric and we are feverishly renovating a 100-year-old farmhouse just on the edge of town. Life is Great!
