I have extensive testing experience with varied populations (0-Adult) and have taught Remedial Reading at Prairie State College in an adjunct position and have Wilson Reading System training. In the past I have served as a homebound/assessment instructor for the Birth-3 population, and participated in the Science on the Go Program at Academy of Sciences for Primary Grades and Chemistry Camp at Chicago State University for Intermediate Upper Grades.
