I knew I wanted a career in education when I witnessed my first “ah-ha! moment” when I was 18 and studying early childhood development. Almost ten years later, I am still fascinated with the multitude of methods of learning, and love to be a part of the acquisition of new knowledge and skills. I currently hold a bachelor's degree in early childhood education from St. Louis University, an elementary certificate from Northeastern Illinois University, and an ESL endorsement certificate from the University of Illinois. I have classroom and tutoring experience working with children ages 5-12, and I love teaching everything from beginning sounds to algebra to how to write an amazing personal narrative. My belief as an educator is to focus on the individual interests and talents of the students and then tailor the lessons so that they are the most appropriate for the learner. In my free time, I enjoy practicing yoga, exploring new restaurants, and reading great books.
