I am a CPS middle school teacher. As a National Board Certified teacher, I am going into my 8th year as a teacher of science, language arts and social studies. I enjoy helping children reach their full potential in learning and look forward to challenging them to realize their capabilities. I am proficient with technology and inquiry based learning. Most of my teaching experience has been with 6th and 7th grade students, however, I am open to teaching all grade levels. Math is not my strong subject, but I can work with students on basic math ideas. My preference would be students that are in need of test preparation, reading and writing skills, science concepts, and social studies ideas. Thank you for viewing my information.
