I am excited to be beginning my second year here at Jahn School of Fine Arts as the middle school Math learning specialist! I will co-teach 5th-8th Math with Ms. Kimberly Mendoza. I look forward to working with your children. Originally from Wilmette, I have spent my adult life in Chicago. I obtained a B.A. in English from Loyola University and a M.A. in Special Education from Northeastern Illinois University. I am currently earning my approval in ESL. For 13 years, I worked as a Learning Behavior Specialist and co-teacher at Amundsen High School, before coming to Jahn last year.  I live in the neighborhood and am overjoyed to have this opportunity to teach at and support my neighborhood school and students. I look forward to helping your children prepare for high school!
