Meet Sarah

  • Special Education Certification
  • Comfortable with pets

I find such joy in working with kids and fostering their love of knowledge and adventure! As a special education teacher for the past five years, I have a wealth of experience when it comes to adapting and modifying activities to meet the individual needs of a child. I have experience in working with children ages 5-15, and have worked with them in a variety of roles: as a camp counselor, a teacher, a nanny, a babysitter, and a community center volunteer. I am comfortable with taking kids on the CTA and bringing them to museums, cultural activities, parks, and pools. Additionally, I have worked as a coach and am excited to be active with kids in many different types of sports! I also enjoy crafting, being outside, exploring new places, and turning everyday activities into teaching and learning moments. I have my summers off, so I'm flexible in terms Read more of when I am available; however, I am back in graduate school working on my masters of counseling, so I have class Tuesday-Thursday nights.
