After teaching in the Chicago Public Schools system, she worked at the University of Chicago’s Hyde Park Day School, teaching children with mild-to-moderate language-based learning disabilities.
“I want to be a catalyst that changes the way our culture thinks about intelligence, ability, capability and success. I’d like to see the education system transformed to allow non-traditional kids to thrive, and I’d like to create a new system of teaching that’s focused around unique learning styles.”
