I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education along with a Bilingual and ESL endorsement from National-Louis University. I also received my Master’s Degree in Reading from the University of St. Francis. Prior to formal training in Reading Recovery/DLL® I taught BIL/ELL and second grade dual language. I have been teaching for 13 years, but have been in the education field since 1994. I’ve taught courses for D47 and currently teach courses for Benedictine and National-Louis University. I do continue to take classes to be up to date on best practices.
