About Veronica

I am currently a first grade teacher in Chicago. I live in Chicago as well. I've taught grades kindergarten through third grade for 13 years. My teaching experience consists of teaching Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics, Writing, Science and Social Studies.

I completed my undergraduate degree at Northeastern Illinois University where I majored in Elementary Education. I received a Bachelor's Degree in 2002. In 2011, I began a graduate program at Concordia University. My major was Teacher Leadership. I received my Master's in 2015.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have four years of tutoring experience. I've tutored children between the ages of five and fourteen in Reading and Math. During my tutoring experience, I've created lesson plans, reward systems, and effective communication to families. I use data to drive my instruction. However, I also plan my lessons based on student interests and learning styles. I strongly believe that all children can learn. I strive to ensure each student is successful and confident in their ability to achieve.

Moreover, I have experience preparing children for standardized tests including MAP (NWEA). Last year, 100% of my students showed academic growth on the MAP (NWEA). In addition, I have experience implementing Common Core standards and a universal design for learning. A universal design for learning accomodates all learning styles and enables all children to learn. In addition, I have mentoring and leadership experience in Education.

Approved subjects
