About Me

I’m a veteran teacher working for Chicago Public Schools. After many years I’ve experienced the joy and heartache teaching brings. Sometimes the heartache outweighs the rewards of teaching. Fortunately I have a great network of friends that support me. However, I have watched good, and many times young teachers leave the system and as a result students lose out on wonderful learning experiences. Some teachers may not have co-workers to turn to for support. I believe that this lack of support stems from teachers fighting with each other to hold onto their jobs. So with the lack of support within schools, what can one teacher such as myself do? Along with a friend I’ve created SpecialChalk.com to provide teachers with support groups, stories, and other resources. These resources are meant to help aspiring, new and veteran teachers.
