Algebra 1

I am endorsed to teach junior high math and have experience teaching up through Algebra 1.


Vocabulary

I am a licensed Reading Specialist for grades K-12, and my masters was in Reading and Literacy. The Reading Specialist Program not only focused on Reading, but with Language Arts and Writing as well. As a Title 1 Teacher, I must focus on vocabulary often, and have a toolbox of strategies to help students in this area.

My undergrad included a specialization in elementary/middle school math. I have experience helping students in my Title 1 Math Program with prealgebra, and have been in my position for four years. Prior to taking my current position, I worked as a substitute teacher, and also gained experience teaching prealgebra.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Illinois State University in May 2009 with a bachelors degree in Education. I am a certified elementary teacher, with an Illinois teaching certificate for grades K-9. I am also endorsed in middle school education, middle school math, and middle school social studies.. I was a math intervention teacher for a K-8 school district in the Joliet area for over 4 years, helping struggling students in math in kindergarten through eighth grade, and now I am in the same school teaching 2nd grade.


Study Skills

I am a certified elementary and middle school educator, and I currently am a math intervention teacher for grades K-8. I worked with students when I student taught in how to appropriately study for tests, and I am currently preparing my students to score better on math tests.


Trumpet

I have played the trumpet from the fourth grade, all the way through college, and beyond, so I have 14 years of playing experience. When I was in high school I privately taught 4-6th graders for 2 years. I have experience playing in concert, jazz, and marching band. I was principal chair several years through my playing career, and played in several groups that were audition only in my years in band. Whether you have a beginning band student, or a high school player, I am confident that I can help them improve, and become mature musicians.
