Hello!

I am a newly retired middle school Language Arts teacher. I have taught at the same Skokie public school for the last 18 years. During that time, I have worked with 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. The school district where I was employed has a diverse student population, representing a wide range of student skills, abilities and interests.

I am quite familiar with the Common Core Reading and Writing Curriculum, and I have created and taught numerous lessons that reinforce the requirements of those standards.

My teaching philosophy is simply stated: every student has a unique way of learning, and my job is to use materials and strategies that are effective with that particular learning style.
I have been told that I am patient with students, and I enjoy sharing tips for improving reading and writing skills.

On a more personal note, I love to read (not surprising), and I am also a musician; I have played the violin and piano all my life, and I have taken guitar and banjo lessons at the Old Town School of Folk Music.

Thanks for your interest; I look forward to hearing from you.
