MY EDUCATION

I've taught regularly for the last ten years, and I have experience teaching people of all levels and abilities. I know how to modify for people with mobility issues, for those in large bodies, and for various health concerns.​

  • ​I hold an Illinois K-12 Special Education Certificate and I was a 5th and 7th grade inclusion special ed teacher in the Chicago Public School system. ​I have extensive experience developing goals, creating accommodations and modifications based on individual needs, and adapting plans as needed.
