About Trisha

I have been a stay at home mom for 6 years now. I have four children, ages 10,8, 6, and 4. Prior to that, I was a teacher for 8 years. I have taught various grades and subjects.

I taught 8th grade Reading and Language Arts. I taught a self contained 5th grade classroom for three years, teaching all subjects. I taught 6th grade for four years teaching social studies, math, reading and language arts. I have also tutored online for the last two years.

I have a Masters Degree from Saint Xavier University for Teaching and Leadership. I received my undergrad degree from Illinois State University in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology. I am endorsed to teach Middle School as well. I am fully licensed to teach in IL too.

Approved subjects
