TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 12 years of experience in educational publishing, creating reference and curriculum products for World Book Encyclopedia. I am a licensed substitute teacher with experience in grades K-8. I completed a graduate certificate in Gifted Education at Northwestern University in 2016 and am currently in a doctorate in education (EdD) program at DePaul University with a focus on curriculum, specifically differentiated lesson plans for K-3.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to encourage inquiry, creativity, and curiosity, and I feel that each learner is unique in his or her ways of looking at and absorbing material, so curriculum should, ideally, be flexible and customizable for each student. I especially love to work with early elementary students in Language Arts, helping them uncover the joy of reading and use that to discover so much more through cross-curricular lessons and activities.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA from the University of Toronto in History and Political Science; an MA from New York University in Middle Eastern Studies, a Graduate Certificate in Gifted Education from Northwestern University, and am currently working on my EdD with a curriculum specialty at DePaul University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm the mother of an avid, early reader (now in 2nd grade); through her I became involved in Northwestern's gifted programs for kids and their graduate program for educators, as well as teaching as a sub at her school (grades K-8), all of which then led to my starting the EdD program at DePaul. My focus is differentiated lesson plans that can be used in standard classrooms to supplement the materials, particularly for the gifted students in the class.
