About Elizabeth

As a teacher, I take pride in nurturing and guiding my students to develop a love of learning that enhances their ability to become contributing citizens in their community. My patient, yet firm, and consistent demeanor has allowed me to be successful in reaching students with varying needs.

I have a wealth of experience working with elementary students in a variety of settings. This past year I taught Kindergarten at Saint Anthanasius School in Evanston. I completed my student teaching in the spring of 2014, in a second grade classroom at Greeley school. I was previously employed by Winnetka from 2011-2013 when I worked as a special education associate. Prior to 2011 I worked in the Wilmette Public Schools as a Kindergarten, Pre-school and Special Education Aide from 2008-2011.

Teaching is about understanding the needs of students, devising teaching methods that will help raise their interest in the subject being taught, and facilitate learning.

I have a passion for working with children and could not imagine myself in any other profession. Through these experiences I have built personal relationships with my students, parents, and school staff. 

I am professionally trained in the Fundations Reading and Handwriting Program, and professionally trained with the Handwriting Without Tears program. I hold a Masters in Elementary Education from DePaul University.

I believe that all students have potential and I am here to help those who are looking for extra support!
