About Charmie

Hello,

I am Charmie and I graduated from National-Louis University with a Master of Arts degree in elementary education. Currently, I am working on my Master's of Education in Specialized Endorsements with a concentration on Reading and ESL. I worked as a microbiologist for 11 years in the pharmaceutical field before deciding on a career change. I made the decision to become a teacher so that I could inspire children to learn.

My goal is simple: to use my knowledge to assist those in need of a helping hand. I want to make a difference in the lives of other by having the satisfaction of teaching today’s youth; they are our future. The major reason for a career change to education was the realization that as a teacher I would be inspired to continue my own learning. One motivation that inspires me to teach is “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” - Proverbs 22:6

I love teaching because I enjoy hard work and helping others find success. I have never been a tutor, however in my current position as a resource teacher I work with small groups of students' within or outside of the classroom as indicated by students’ need for appropriate instruction in language arts or math. I like to help my students to engage in meaningful and interesting learning activities that apply to their lives. I accomplish this through the use of hands-on/minds-on activities, cooperative learning, an integrated curriculum, and, whenever possible, technology.
