I am a K-8 certified teacher, with endorsements in French and Learning and Behavior. My passions lie in reading and writing, but I love teaching all subjects. I am currently a 6th grade Learning and Behavior Specialist at a Chicago Public School. I've previously taught in preschool, third, fourth, and fifth grades. I am familiar with a variety of curriculums for all subjects including Everyday Math, Go Math, Connected Math, TouchMath, Envision Math, Lucy Caulkins Writing Program, Wilson Reading Program, Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy, and several others. I am passionate about working with children and love supporting learners with their diverse needs.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I love playing get to know you games to learn about the student as a whole. I also find learning inventories particularly helpful to know which methods of teaching work best for the particular student.
