Bio

Hello, nice to meet you! I am a recent graduate of the University of St. Francis in Joliet. I am a mother of four who decided to go back and finish a degree I started long ago before I had my children. My children are now self sufficient for the most part and I have plenty of time and wisdom to share.

I have had a lot of experience assisting students. I have been substitute teaching in Joliet 86 and Valley View 365U for a year and completed my student teaching in 3rd grade in Joliet....

Hello, nice to meet you! I am a recent graduate of the University of St. Francis in Joliet. I am a mother of four who decided to go back and finish a degree I started long ago before I had my children. My children are now self sufficient for the most part and I have plenty of time and wisdom to share.

I have had a lot of experience assisting students. I have been substitute teaching in Joliet 86 and Valley View 365U for a year and completed my student teaching in 3rd grade in Joliet. During that time I worked with guided reading groups, implemented RTI in ELA and Math and taught all lessons which ranged from Science and Social Studies to Math and Writing. I love helping students to the AHA moment. All kids can learn, some just need to find the way they learn best. I look forward to working with you and your child to help him or her achieve.

I love to read. I have thousands of books that range from pre-reader including Hooked on Phonics and Bob Series early readers to books for high-school students. I also have access to many different online resources and will track your child's reading level to ensure growth.

I have implemented all lessons in student teaching using goals and CCSS (Common Core State Standards). I am familiar with the new standards and can assist parents in better understanding these new standards.

As a substitute teacher I have taught thousands of students. My experience ranges between Kindergarten and 5th grade. I have had the privilege of getting to know many different ways to teach the same thing (teachers each have a unique style). This is important because each student is different. If a child is not getting something, I know I need to try another approach.

During my time student teaching, I taught phonics to my lower level 3rd graders. These students benefit from refresher courses in phonics. Early readers need to build their phonics knowledge in order to begin to attack longer words as they get to be better readers.

I am waiting for you to contact me! Together, we can help your child achieve his or her goals one day at a time. Thank you for your consideration.
