Learning Assistant for Ms. Williamson

I was born and grew up in Evanston, Illinois. I spent several years teaching English abroad in Georgia, Korea and Turkey and now I am so happy to be back here in Chicago. I am now pursuing a Master's degree in early childhood education at DePaul University and in my free time I enjoy reading, playing the cello and spending as much time as possible by the lake.

I strongly believe that every person should have the opportunity to experience the world around them. In my own experiences out of the country I learned so much about other cultures, my own culture and myself. It is so important that we as educators provide this life altering perspective to our students.
