About Tanya

I have had the great fortune of working as a Special Education Teacher for the last six years. I began my career as a teacher in Arizona, teaching students with special needs in an elementary school. After two years, I moved to Chicago and worked at a middle school, serving a variety of students, including those identitied with having learning, emotional, and intellectual disabilities. Through my patience, flexibility, determination, and strong belief that all children are capable of learning, I have enjoyed much success and watched my students make tremendous academic, social, and emotional growth.

I am extremely passionate about teaching and feel incredibly rewarded not only watching students grow academically, but witnessing a growth in their confidence as well.

Since the implementation of Common Core, all of my lesson plans have been aligned according to the standards and designed effectively so that all students experienced success.

My success as an educator stems from taking an individual approach with every student. My ability to "think outside of the box," create fun and engaging lessons, and instill confidence in each student has contributed greatly to my success.
