As someone who came from a low-income environment and went on to become an International Scholar, I feel that I have the first-hand experience that is needed to help people succeed. Throughout my experience in the education world, I’ve worked with diverse students in all grade levels (K-12) and of all nationalities and backgrounds. I know how to deal with different levels of learning, from special needs and behavioral disorders to gifted students and multiple intelligences. I've worked with students one-on-one and in small and large group settings. During my years in the classroom, I’ve achieved many successes with students. I participated in a reading program that won awards and recognition from the school district. I organized several sports activities for special education students, which encouraged even the most withdrawn students to “come out of their shells.” I also assisted with mainstreaming many BD (behavioral disorder) students into regular classrooms. When I walk into a classroom, children love me and other teachers are impressed with my teaching methods and unique ability to connect with students. I believe in the importance of engaging and motivating our students to constantly grow and learn, while offering real life experiences and entertaining lessons that encourage critical thinking and personal success.
I have received my Master’s degree in education from DePaul University and have Type 3 Illinois Teacher Certification. I am looking for a fulfilling job where I will be able to use all of my skills and talents to pass knowledge onto our youth.
I am a passionate musician and educator who is always looking to grow and learn, but still have fun in the process! I love playing sports of all types, from chess to badminton to basketball. Most of all, I like teaching students how to apply what they learn to real life experiences.
