TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an educator and artist with a love for all things related to nature, time, Judaism, and Montessori. Professionally, I'm an associate professor of English at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Illinois, where I teach developmental reading and writing, English, and education courses. I also teach classes on literacy instruction to graduate students who plan to become reading specialists. I'm a former high school English teacher and reading specialist. I also spent six years teaching gifted courses for K through 8th graders in Northwestern University's Saturday Enrichment Program, and four years teaching religious school in my family's synagogue.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style is to always ask "What is best for my students?" Once I figure it out, that's what I do. We are a Montessori family; our children attend an amazing private Montessori school here in Illinois. At home we blend the Montessori approach with many principles from Waldorf (Rudolph Steiner) and Charlotte Mason. (Think order and minimalism meets nature. ;)) We strive to live a curious, unhurried, beautiful Jewish life.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My recent research report ("Social Media and Student Engagement in First-Year Developmental Reading Courses") has been added to the National Center for Developmental Education's (NCDE) research library, housed in the Kellogg Institute at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. I conducted this research and submitted the report as the final practicum project for my certification as a Developmental Education Specialist. NCDE identifies exemplary reports to become a part of the permanent library collection. I'm honored that my research will live among that of so many of my wonderful colleagues in the field of developmental education.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Certified Developmental Education specialist through the Kellogg Institute at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Go Apps!
