I am an instructional coach at a middle school. I was a classroom teacher for 7 years, teaching 5th grade and 7th grade ELA.
My beliefs are deeply rooted in the notion that building relationships with students is the most important part of a successful classroom. I believe the magic happens when the classroom is built on a foundation of mutual respect, trust, and kindness.

I have a bachelor's in Elementary Education with endorsements in reading, language arts, social studies, ELL, and middle school. I have a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Teaching, Learning, and Assessment.
I live in Chicago, IL with my husband and two dogs, Stella and Albus "Albi" Dumbledore.
