TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For the past four years, I taught Physics in a self-contained setting for junior students with disabilities ranging from mild cognitive impairments to specific learning disabilities. Additionally, I taught in a co-taught setting to allow students with disabilities to access the general curriculum. These experiences have allowed me to gain great insight into how to create differentiated, rigorous activities for students that build confidence, address both NGSS and Common Core standards and pique student interest daily. In addition to my science experience, I taught Theory of Knowledge as part of the International Baccalaureate program. Currently, I am taking a hiatus from traditional teaching and working as a classroom auxiliare de conversacion in Madrid!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style stems from my belief that all students are capable of achieving. It takes an understanding of their learning style, their interests and how to engage them to get all students hooked. My teaching style is geared towards high-interest (think zombie apocalypse to learn about light rays), tactile and kinesthetic experiences. Additionally, as a teacher for students with diverse needs, many of my materials and activities allow for modifications to include all in the classroom!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Originally from Chicago, I attended a small private school on the Southside that taught me the importance of exploration and inquiry in the classroom. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Grinnell College, a small liberal arts college in Grinnell, IA. My degree was in both English Literature and French. Following college, I participated in an Americorps program which allowed me to tutor at-risk students on the Westside of Chicago, ultimately leading me to join Chicago Teaching Fellows the next year and earn my LBSI certification.
