Early Childhood Learning Assistant

I was born and raised here in Chicago. I am very big on Family, I love exploring the Windy City and trying new things, Chicago has so much to offer and I am so grateful to call it my hometown. I also love to exercise and walks along the soothing waters of Lake Michigan. While working as a Newborn Hearing Screener at Loyola Medicine I earned my Paraprofessional License, upon earning that I’ve worked at several schools as a Teacher Assistant, Special Education Classroom Assistant, Etc. I absolutely love what I do. I have taught and also learned so much over the years and can’t wait to see what the years ahead have in store with my new family here at British International School of Chicago!

I believe creativity and challenges help our students get better everyday, over the years I’ve observed that creativity improves cognitive function, mood, can also help to focus the mind, amongst several other things. Challenge is the core of the growth mindset. It gives children the opportunity to take risk, even if they fail they’ll learn and figure out how to pick themselves up again. It reminds our students that they are stronger and more capable than they give themselves credit for. These skills will be something our children will take and use throughout their whole life!
