About Bryan


Bio

This June wrapped up my first year as an English Language Arts (ELA) teacher on the west side of Chicago. Most of my students were below grade level. Having to differentiate taught me a lot about what students need to know in order to be at a third grade level; what we call vertical progression.

My style of teaching allows students to perform most of the cognitive lifting, while I probe them with questions that will enable them to think critical.

I am a calm, loving, nurturing father...

This June wrapped up my first year as an English Language Arts (ELA) teacher on the west side of Chicago. Most of my students were below grade level. Having to differentiate taught me a lot about what students need to know in order to be at a third grade level; what we call vertical progression.

My style of teaching allows students to perform most of the cognitive lifting, while I probe them with questions that will enable them to think critical.

I am a calm, loving, nurturing father of two. I love teaching and I love investing in the lives of young people.

I completed a teaching residency with a literacy guru at Morton School of Excellence. At Morton, we focused on reading interventions through literature and non-fiction texts, differentiated instruction, and various types of writing to name a few. I used the knowledge gained from my residency in my own classroom and had a fairly successful year.

I have been working with common core for 2 years and I have had extensive training on it. I would consider myself at the mastery level for third grade standards in ELA, however, my knowledge of the standards as a whole will make it easier to approach other grade levels.

I encourage you to take a leap of faith and allow me to guide your learning so that you can regain the confidence to succeed academically.
