Writing. Reading. Everything comes back to this.
I have been with the Chicago Public Schools for a long time, and have been teaching an even longer time. In addition to English, which has been my most recent main area focus at Hancock High School, I have also taught Math, Social Sciences, Art, and Gifted classes and courses. Additionally, I have functioned as adjunct faculty at Saint Xavier University, where I have taught writing classes.
I currently have a BA in Education from SXU, with minors in Art and Writing; MA in Multicategorical Special Education from GSU; MA in Educational Administration from GSU; MA in Reading from GSU; and National Board Certification in Exceptional Learners (from Special Education through Gifted).
