TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 2006. I taught in a large district that had a majority of students who qualified for free or reduced lunch. I had to work to earn my students interest and get them to learn. In 2009 I moved to a smaller, less diverse district where I brought my non-traditional teaching style with me.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in student-based learning whenever possible, whether is is discoevry-based, partner-based or technology-based. Standing at the front of the room teaching equations day after day is boring for both the students and the teachers. When students can discover knowledge themselves or explain it to their classmates, it is more likely to stick with them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was chosen as a Golden Apple Scholar in high school, which is a teacher prep program in Illinois in addition to college. Student work in the Chicago Public Schools program for two summers, and fulfill an additional two summers of training. In exchange, we agree to teach in a school of need, to send the best teachers to the students that need us the most.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Eastern Illinois University for both my Undergraduate (Math and History Certification) and my Graduate (American History). I am currently working on my Technology Specialist Endorsement through Western Illinois University.

I am married to a former art teacher and the mother of a three year old daughter, plus a dog and a cat.
