ExperienceI started my teaching career teaching English in Japan and then returned to Chicago and taught both general education, ESL and Special Education. I have nearly 15 years of experience working with students in Kndg - 8th grade.
I also have over 5 years of experience working with students in small groups or individually as an Educational Therapist - I was fortunate to work with great mentors and psychologists in Chicago, whom I learned a great deal from!
My area of specialty is working with students who struggle with reading, writing and executive functioning skills - I love these subjects and helping my students become successful!
I am also trained in the Wilson method for reading instruction, this program works for non-readers and students struggling with dyslexia.
I am also able to act as a family advocate during school meetings.
I believe that parents, teachers, therapists and educational therapists should form a team to support students and I have been successful in the past in fostering these relationships.
HobbiesAside from being an educator, I am also mama to two children and an essential oil enthusiast. I love being outdoors - walking, biking, fishing, just playing with my kids!
I have traveled extensively around the world and love fostering diversity and a sense of wonder in both my children and my students. I look forward to working with you and your student.
