This is my second year teaching all kindergarten, and it is *exactly* where I want to be! I've also taught second, gifted third, and a k/1 split.
In my class, You. Will. Learn. I am strict (like, seriously, look at me and think "how is she a kindergarten teacher?"), but my classroom is warm and full of love. We laugh and have fun. We have real-world discussions, and make connections. We work our behinds off.

I went to CPS schools from K-12. I strongly believe in public, urban education. It brought me to where I am today, and I can be that person to bring out the best in my students. I went to Loyola Chicago and got my B.S.Ed. in elementary education/ history. Hoping to soon have the money and time to get my masters (not sure- either reading specialist or special ed).
