About Michael

Throughout my years as an educator I have worked in several elementary schools throughout Chicago and taught students in every subject and grade level. I have worked with a variety of students ranging from students who were below grade level to those who were above grade level. I have also worked with English language learners, students with 504 plans and IEPs, and gifted students. I have worked with students of varying interests and backgrounds and have had much success in connecting with every one of them. My teaching methods reflect the diversity of the students I teach. In my years working in CPS schools I have worked alongside teachers, students, parents, counselors, and others to improve the education and general well being of my students. As a Teacher Assistant I work one on one with students who require additional help during class.

I attend Western Governors University which has been great for my schedule and learning style. At WGU learning is based on competency, not clock hours and since it is online my schedule is open for my students. I am a member of the National Education Association and involved in several national and community learning organizations. I will complete resident teaching during the Fall of 2016 after which I will be certified in Elementary Education and K-8 Art.

I believe every student has a natural curiosity and ability to learn which a good teacher merely guides. My teaching methods are based on proven strategies such as project centered learning, arts integration, reading across the curriculum, cooperative learning, and other methods supported by the latest educational research. My teaching methods emphasize student engagement and using hands on skills to teach real world applications. My teaching objectives are to make learning a fun and positive experience that is engaging, creative, and meaningful, to ensure student confidence, and to individualize instruction by utilizing a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of diverse learners.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about my experience, education, or teaching methods.

Thank you,

-Michael
