I will be entering year 27 of my teaching career. During this time, I have taught grades 2-3 and 6-9. I earned my Masters in Education as a Reading Specialist and served as a Lead Literacy Teacher in CPS. Though I have taught all subjects, my passion remains in the teaching of reading and writing!
I would describe my "style" as one of teacher/learner. I like to share ideas and learn from other teachers and my students. Teaching to the many modes of learning is also part of my teaching style. I am always searching for new and creative ways to reach my students!
