I am currently a special education teacher teaching within the Chicago Public Schools. I have an M.Ed in Special Education, and a bachelor's degree in English. I am considered highly qualified in a number of subject areas. I am also qualified to teach students with diverse learning needs and learning styles. I am also an expert in reading development, and I can adapt to any learners' specific needs. I am extremely patient, and love to teach. Since a lot of my students also have behavioral difficulties, I find that I know how to connect with them in ways that help them find learning fun, useful, and applicable to their lives. I consider myself a life-long learner, am extremely knowledgeable in many subject areas, am an avid reader, and keep abreast of research-based teaching practices. I can also test students with informal reading inventories, and other methods in order to pinpoint exactly the student needs. I embrace all differences, and know (and have seen first hand) that EVERYONE, regardless of background, supposed deficit, disability, or reluctancy, can and will learn with individualized teaching methods.
