Hi! My name is Stacey. I work on the administrative side of JAM Teaching and Consulting. I am currently a first-grade teacher in Wilmette. I grew up in the northwest suburbs and graduated with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I then went back to school to receive my Reading Specialist Certification. I have a passion for reading and learning and have been able to apply my continuing education directly to the classroom setting.
I have spent the past ten-plus years teaching at the first and second-grade levels. I love teaching primary education because of the growth and development these kids can obtain. It’s magical. I truly believe that teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning. I enjoy spending my time teaching and tutoring one-on-one to bring learning to life and embed in students a desire and excitement for learning.
I am excited to be a part of JAM Teaching and Consulting. We set high expectations in our desire to customize learning to meet each individual’s needs and provide them with the support and resources necessary to be successful.
