TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a fourth year teacher in a suburb in Illinois. I received a degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Reading. I am officially a certified reading specialist!

MY TEACHING STYLE

At school, I get involved in as many things as I can, because I can't get enough of this school! From Harry Potter Camp, to TECHsperts, to Business Club, I'm constantly staying busy. I also have a passion for creativity. It's instilled in everything I do. I bring my creativity to my classroom each day, enjoy trying new things and taking risks!
