I have been a special education teacher and private tutor for 16 years. I have been a resource teacher for grades K-8, but currently work with middle school students.
I believe that it is my job to help every student reach his/her full potential. My classroom is a child-centered environment where verbal praise, positive reinforcement, laughter, active engagement, collaboration, problem-solving, and hands-on activities foster a passion for life-long learning.
I am currently seeking my National Board Certification...wish me luck! :)
I received my bachelor's degree from Valparaiso University and a master's degree from National-Louis University.
I am committed to project-based learning, 21st century skills, and technology in education!
