I started my career as a Reading Specialist working with students in small groups and coaching teachers in grades 1st-8th. I have been a teacher for Chicago Public Schools for the past 11 years. Most of my experience is in English/Language Arts for grades 5th-8th. I was an adjunct faculty member in the Graduate School of Education at Dominican University for 4 years.
I teach using the Reading and Writing Workshop Model. I believe strongly in differentiating to meet student needs and creating lessons that engage students in text and literature.
