TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a fourth grade teacher in the south Chicago suburbs. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with my degree in Elementary Education. The program included three semesters of student teaching after we were accepted into the program. I have had experience teaching kindergarten as well as grades 2-5. When I was in college, I worked at a cultural museum on campus. This experience expanded my love for new cultures, people, traditions, and outlooks. I try to bring this interest into my classroom and share it with students to create well-rounded individuals. I also planned and directed a summer camp at that museum. In my younger years, I coached a volleyball team for my hometown's summer league.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I utilize group work, independent practice, and whole-group instruction. I am passionate about reading, so I create novel studies for books I want my students to investigate. As much as possible, I try to include some kind of option for differentiation in my materials, whether that is modified assignment or strategies for the teacher.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the University of Illinois with my degree in Elementary Education. I am also endorsed to teach middle school science, social studies, and language arts. However, my heart is with the tiny humans in the primary grades (did you get that Grey's Anatomy reference?) Currently, I am pursuing my master's for a degree in Differentiation.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love, love, love animals! I try to befriend every single one I meet, even if they're a wild animal. I love to travel, explore, and try new things, especially new food! I almost went to culinary school instead of getting my degree in education. I know I made the right choice :-)
