Chicago Educational Consultant for Parents & Teachers: Teacher Coach, Executive Functions, Learning Variances, SEL, Restorative Practices, Personalized Learning

Methodology

I am a dedicated teacher of 15 years, teaching and coaching in the inner-city of Chicago. I practice a Critical Pedagogy and am a firm believer that learning should be fun, interesting, developmentally appropriate, and socially and culturally relevant. I am currently working as an Independent Educational Consultant, supporting equitable teaching practices that engage and advance student learning. I am also offering my services to parents who are interested in learning more about how to advocate and support their child who may be currently dealing with issues related to Executive Functioning, Social and Emotional Learning, and Learning Variances.

Background

During my tenure as an educator, my skills have grown sharp in integrating ideas into purposeful action. I am confident in my ability to coach and mentor teachers, facilitate professional development, and influence teachers’ understanding of how to contextualize teaching. In addition, I am proficient in leading teachers to implement social and emotional learning, create a positive culture and climate, successfully manage student behavior, create learning profiles, facilitate proactive and responsive circles, create effective lesson plans, strategically differentiate instruction, and implement strategies to personalize learning.
