As a newly certified K-9 educator and 2013 graduate of Chicago State University, I have had student teaching experiences in the primary levels (grades 1 and 2), intermediate levels (3, 4, and 5) and middle school levels (6, 7, and 8) in the Chicago Public School district.

While student teaching, I've had the opportunity to help my students to continue mastering their basic skills, while also inspiring and motivating them to want to learn more. My students have challenged me to be creative, nurturing and most of all, patient.

I am a dedicated, resourceful, and goal–driven educator with a solid commitment to the social and academic growth and development of every student. I am also an accommodating and versatile individual with the talent to develop inspiring, hands-on lessons that will breed student success. I have the aptitude to remain flexible, ensuring that every child’s learning styles and abilities are addressed. I have experience exhibiting highly-developed interpersonal and communication skills that foster meaningful relationships with students, staff, and parents.
It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, and intelligent teacher who will make a positive contribution to your son or daughter's life.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have Master's degree in Elementary Education from Chicago State University. During my years at Chicago State, I have had the opportunity to observed a variety of teaching practices. I have been able to use these methods while tutoring in math, science, reading, and social studies for a variety of schools. Finally I was able to compile everything I have learned as a candidate teacher into an rich experience as student teacher and now a newly certified instructor. I have had teaching experiences with all grade levels. I have Bachelor's degree in English for the University of Illinois at Chicago where I tutored in our writing center for 4 months.

Phonics

I am currently endorsed, or highly qualified, in the subject of Language Arts. I have taught 1st/2nd grade students and practiced daily with phonics using scripted text. Using this text students segmented the onsets and rimes of different words to see how different parts of words come together to make that word. Student segmented different phonemes to see how different letter come together to create a word. I also practiced with phonics flashcards for my students with vowels, digraphs, and diphthongs that I created for extra practice and students would later work independently on this skill.
