About Kacy

I am an Education Policy PhD student and former Chicago Public Schools teacher. Certified in Language Arts, Social Studies, and ESL instruction from the University of Michigan, I have had the opportunity to teach across a variety of contexts. My current work as a university instructor at the 400- and 500-level has been a great introduction to the world of teaching college students. I connect well with students who are excited about their learning goals, and love the challenge of finding ways to make difficult material accessible and fun. Writing and English are my most developed areas of expertise. As an academic researcher and instructor, I'm immersed in the world of dense reading and precise writing, and I am excited to share my skills and habits with students.

I have 10 years of experience teaching English as a second language. I had a near perfect English ACT score. I scored in the 90th Percentile for the GRE Verbal and Reading.

I can't wait to meet you and help you achieve your educational and professional goals!
