Hi there! My name is Jessica and I am a current special education teacher in Chicago Public Schools. I love living in the city, and have been a Chicago resident for almost ten years now! I have a Masters in Special Education from UIC, as well as my undergraduate degree. I have extensive experience working with children of all ages--from infants to high school. Currently, I work with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and varied learning disabilities. I have experience as a nanny and a tutor, as well as a childcare worker. I am looking to help out mostly in the summer time, but I am willing to also help during the school year if time allows. I have my own pet, and I am comfortable with making light meals. I love doing Yoga and exploring the city, as well as long walks with my dog. Please feel free Read more to reach out if you have any more questions! I would love to help out if you think we might be a good fit! I am CPR certified, up to date on shots including Whooping Cough, and also certified by the state of Illinois as a teacher for grades K-12. Thanks so much!
