I am elementary school teacher for over 18 years for Chicago Public Schools. I taught in the south side of Chicago area called Canaryville, and just completed teaching on the west side area known as Austin/Lawndale. The school on the west side of Chicago was part of the phase out program to close schools for poor performance. I want emphasize that my school did not close for low performance on standard test. I have taught several grades, work as a team player, and a mentor teacher to new teachers joining Chicago Public Schools. I taught in the After School Program for 12 years. This past year I was involved with the state of the art tutoring program with notebook computers for each student in the program. The name of the program is Learn It Systems; where each student works at their own pace. My responsibility in this program is monitor students progress and to keep them on task. As a teacher I have completed several program to increase and benefit students in areas of Reading,Writing, and Math. Some of these programs are Reading First, Guided Reading, Math Trailblazers, and EveryDay Math.
