My name is Sarah. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade for the past 5 years in public schools in Chicago, the suburbs of Chicago, and Latin America. I hold a professional Educator License in the state of Illinois, and have endorsements in ESL, Bilingual (Spanish/English) Education and Foreign Language (Spanish). My focus over the past several years is second language acquisition, but I am versed in all subject areas taught in early elementary grades. I have a strong background in reading intervention, and enjoy working with early readers to develop their literacy skills. Outside of the elementary classroom, I have experience working with adult English learners through one-on-one tutoring and am currently teaching a course in grammar.
