About Rick


Bio

I'm originally from a small town in Indiana, but I have lived on Chicago's Northwest side for 13 years. I have a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education from Tri-State University. I have recently been a Special Education Classroom Assistant for Chicago Public Schools, where I worked with 3-8th grade students in all subjects. I love to share my knowledge of all subjects, especially History and Government.

I love to read, and share that with my students. I am careful to follow...

I'm originally from a small town in Indiana, but I have lived on Chicago's Northwest side for 13 years. I have a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education from Tri-State University. I have recently been a Special Education Classroom Assistant for Chicago Public Schools, where I worked with 3-8th grade students in all subjects. I love to share my knowledge of all subjects, especially History and Government.

I love to read, and share that with my students. I am careful to follow lexile ratings for both fiction and non-fiction titles. I believe that reading is important to all subject areas throughout school, and into the child's future. I teach note taking, organization, comprehension, grammar rules, close reading strategies, and fluency.

I have a great deal of information to pass on to my elementary students. I have taught fractions, decimals, probability, operations, graphing, pre-algebra, multiplication, division, square roots. In spelling, I challenge my students to not only know how to spell the word, but how to analyze the root, prefix, suffix, definitions, and uses of the word.

I have a wealth of knowledge in all areas of history, government, economics, and geography. I am very focused on connecting historical events to the present day to ensure interest by the student.
