I am a young teacher (just approaching student teaching!) I have done multiple field experiences for methods courses in which I've designed lessons and taught them. These lesson plans were then evaluated by the university professors. I believe that being new to the field of education is an advantage for me, rather than a disadvantage. I am up-to-date in terms of expectations for teachers and my lessons are designed through incorporation of common core standards.
I love being a facilitator of learning in the classroom rather than a lecturer. I am an advocate for intensive group work.
Illinois State Scholar, Dean's List, National Society of Collegiate Scholars member, Kappa Delta Pi member
I attended St. Symphorosa School for pre-K through grade 8, Queen of Peace High School for grades 9 through 12, and am currently attending Saint Xavier University for my B.S. in elementary education with a mathematics endorsement and an ELL endorsement.
I am very enthusiastic about the career that I am working towards and I love what I do.
