"I spent 13 years working as a veterinary technician at various animal hospitals throughout Illinois. As my skills progressed, I trained coworkers in animal nursing. Coworkers praised my patience and knowledge and recommended my teaching skills. While working as veterinary technician, I volunteered at a local private school assisting teachers in the preschool and elementary settings. My passion for mentoring students grew, and I found myself changing careers and now supervise students in the After School Care program."

I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student.

"Although I always thought teaching sounded exciting, it was not until I began volunteering in a third grade classroom that I was sure I wanted to pursue education as a career.
