B.A. in Urban Education, University of Illinois at Chicago
I chose to become an educator because:
I am dedicated to empowering youth through the means of education. As an educator, I believe in having children use their own experiences and backgrounds as a lens with which to navigate both the academic and non-academic world. I believe that students and teachers learn through a reciprocal process, and my classroom is a reflection of this belief where the focus is on open discussions, sharing of ideas, taking risks, and learning from our mistakes.
I publish information about my classroom and keep my families informed by:
Homework assignments are posted on Google Classroom.
During my time off, I like to:
I love to travel! This past year I visited Disney World, Disneyland, Washington, D.C., New York, and Paris.
Google Classroom is District 123’s web-based platform that makes it easy for teachers to create classes, distribute assignments and communicate with students and families.
You can find your student’s Google Apps for Education Username and Password under the Portfolio tab in Skyward Family Access.
***Please use caution when accessing your student’s Google account. You are digitally working/acting as them and changes you make to files – folders – emails – etc… will affect their live school account. Encourage your child to sit next to you and show-off their work and show you around their digital learning environment.***
