Welcome to teacherchavez.wordpress.com!

Welcome to my blog created to collaborate and share coursework from the Michigan State University MAET program. I am a proud alumna of Chicago Public Schools, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Golden Apple Scholars Program, and the MSU Urban STEM and Leadership Fellowship. I’ve spent the first four years of my teaching career teaching middle school science, however I  transitioned to middle school literacy during the 2014-2015 school year. I am committed to providing all students with a quality education through engaging hands-on instructional activities, opportunities to create and collaborate with peers, and an integrated curriculum allowing students to transfer strategies and skills across content areas. Beyond teaching, I enjoy eating new foods, exploring the Chi, and blogging about my teaching and learning. I look forward to collaborating and sharing with you!
