Being a Twenty-first Century teacher-practitioner, I know that my responsibility is to enable, encourage, and elevate every student to reach their full potential through means relevant and appropriate to the current generation. These responsibilities are my aim every day in the classroom. Being that I was educated under a philosophy that is rooted in social justice, and because my own beliefs tell me education is justice, I will not sway from these responsibilities and principles. Every student matters to me, each has a voice – heard or unheard. Finally, and most importantly, I will never give up on any student who walks into my classroom.

I began my working experience young, working in the automotive and customer service industry, quickly promoting into the positions of assistant manager and general manager. During my tenure at AutoServe LLC, I was able to develop a strong, responsible team of technicians and sales professionals that performed at the highest level in the company. My team’s dedication to service is what allowed for this success; it is also what fostered in me a deep passion for consumer experiences and service.
For the next ten years, I was able to further develop and hone “the experience” skill in many roles. For several years after leaving the automotive industry, I helped create a dynamic environment in two Chicagoland electronics stores as the Customer Experience Expert. This position was responsible for a litany tasks, not limited to managing and developing all departmental team leads.
After attending Loyola University Chicago and earning my degree in education with an emphasis on language arts, science, and history, I was able blend my management and customer experience skills in order to successfully manage many diverse classrooms over a five year span.
