Currently I am a Special Education teacher for middle school grades in Lakeview.

I attended DePaul University's Masters of Education in Elementary Education and Special Education Dual Certification Program. I have additional endorsements in Social Sciences: History, Psychology, Geography, etc. and Visual Arts at the middle school level.

My undergraduate education focused in Child Psychology, Art History & Design, and Urban and International Education Development. I received my Bachelor of Arts from DePaul University in June 2010.

My professional experiences in Education include working with students ages K-8 and special education students in the following capacities:

Special Education Teacher 4-7 for Chicago Public Schools in Lakeview, a Chicago neighborhood.

Special Education Teacher K-3 for Chicago Public Schools in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood.

Special Education Paraprofessional 2nd-4th grade students in District 48, Oakbrook Terrace, IL.

1:1 Aide for an Autistic student in SASED: Special Education Coop for DuPage County.

Professional Educator for a junior kindergarten (half-day kindergarten)in Bartlett, IL.

My instruction style is differentiated per students' needs. I strive to create a positive learning environment by introducing positive systems to help students retain information and learn the material. In addition, I strive to maintain strong communication between myself and the student and/or parent. This allows for updated progress and techniques that can assist the student outside of tutoring sessions to be thoroughly discussed and explored.
