My name is Noelle St Germain. I am from the Chicago suburbs. I am an instructional coach in Aurora, IL. It is my second year in the position and it is the second year of having coaches in my district. Prior to becoming a coach, I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I’ve also worked as a teaching assistant and substitute.
I have a BA in English from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (minoring in history). After graduating, I worked for five years in the business field. Not satisfied with where my career was heading, I return to school to get my teaching license. I recently (2018) obtained a Master of Arts in Reading Instruction. I will graduate in May with a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership.
I joined the academy to learn ways to support teachers with their math instruction. I also want to improve my understanding of math and how to reach all students.
