A little about myself:
Hometown: Deerfield, IL
Education: University of Michigan (B.A. History) and Depaul University (M.Ed Special Education)
Favorite sports teams: Michigan Wolverines football, Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and I don't mind jumping back on the Chicago Cubs bandwagon after this season
Favorite food: Burgers! I will go out of my way to try a place that is rumored to have top notch burgers
Least favorite food: Seafood
Favorite movie: Blackhawk Down
Favorite TV series: Band of Brothers
Favorite music group/singer: Big Bang (a Korean group)
Hobbies: playing pick up games of ultimate frisbee and football, watching football, and spending time with my family.
Quirks: I am more motivated to do things when it turns into a friendly competition. I find it more enjoyable and entertaining when you have to pit yourself against someone else. Thus, I tend to gam-ify everything, whenever, wherever.
Why I teach: I had amazing teachers growing up. They helped shape who I am today and I hope to do the same for my students.
