TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My experience is with students from the age of 10 to 22. I teach all different levels of Special Education and am highly qualified in the areas of Math (basic operations, pre-algebra, algebra 1, an algebra 2), Science (physical science and chemistry), and ELA (I and II).

MY TEACHING STYLE

My philosophy is simple; teach students in the best modality that they learn. I enjoy teaching in stations and centers. That way, students have built in motor breaks. I embrace true co-teaching and have had the great fortune of working and collaborating with the best of the best!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded the Special Education Teaching Scholarship. I was inducted and served in the Sigma Rho Epsilon Honors Fraternity.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Mother McAuley HS in 2006. I earned my BA from EIU in 2010.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am happily married with one little guy and a baby on the way. I absolutely love spending time with my family, friends, and pets. My additional photography business keeps life busy and interesting. Go Chicago Blackhawks!.
