I have been teaching at Gemini Middle School for 21 years! I love the diversity and insights that students bring to class every day. I have a degree in the Teaching of English from the University of Illinois at Chicago, a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in English as a Second Language from National Louis University, and a master's degree in Literacy from the American College of Education. I also have 54 hours in additional coursework in a range of teaching strategies.
I have two boys, ages 10 and 13, so I am also a middle school parent myself! I look forward to using my education in creating challenging lessons to teach students about aquiring the English language and exploring literature and writing together this school year.
