I attended Wheaton College in Illinois, which is an evangelical private university. I took many courses in the New and Old Testaments. I received a minor in Theological Studies from Wheaton.
I have taught fourth grade and second grade as a public school teacher in Chicago. Before working as an elementary school teacher, I worked for several years as a teacher's assistant. In that position, I assisted students with special needs in an elementary school. I have tutored students as young as 5 years old in reading. I have also worked one-on-one with elementary school students to help them develop their writing skills.
I scored a 165 on the Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE. I scored a 162 on the Quantitative Reasoning section. I scored a 4.5 on the Analytical Writing section.
I have helped children learn phonics skills. I have used a variety of resources to help them learn letter sounds and put those sounds together. For example, I have used picture books, Spectrum workbooks, Bob books, iPad applications, and songs. I have been successful in helping children learn to read.
