EducationNational Louis University - BA, Elementary Education
ExperienceI have a B.A. in Elementary Education from National Louis University. My minor was in Biological Sciences. I've been a middle school teacher in Waukegan, Illinois since I graduated from the university, instructing mostly in math subjects such as pre-algebra and algebra. Whether teaching algebra, reading, writing, English, or science, I enjoy nothing more than witnessing the expression a child has when they grasp something the first time. I am truly passionate about teaching. I can also help kids prepare for exams such as the SAT, ISEE, and HSPT. It's important they do well as my student, but also long after they leave my classroom.As an professional educator, my belief is that I have to do everything in my power for my students to reach the highest possible potential. I do not believe in ever saying "can't"; it's just not part of my vocabulary. Students from my past often come back after graduating from high school, or are already in college, and thank me for being a believer. As super dedicated to my work as an educator and the success of my students, I enjoy taking some leisure time to read, volunteer, and spend quality time with family and friends.
