    Personal Achievements:

    I received the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom Award in 2017, which recognizes 16 Chicago-area teachers chosen for the honor out of 500 nominations, for outstanding leadership and instructional skills during the Chicago Bears season. With this award I was recognized for my strong, structured academic planning and implementation, unshakable positive attitude and enthusiasm for the children I support, and my ability to cheerfully tackle any kind of hiccup means that every teacher in the school seeks out opportunities to work with me. I am my students' biggest fan and advocate!
