Hi, I’m Sean-Mykle.

I am an educator in the suburbs of Chicago, for a high needs middle school. I teach 7th grade Social Studies. I completed my Bachelor Degree at the University of Illinois – Springfield in History. I am currently working on my Masters in Teaching at the Relay Graduate School of Education.

I had tried to find my purpose in life for a long time prior to becoming an educator.

My Journey

Throughout elementary school and secondary school my family moved around a lot. I come from a single parent family and saw my mother chasing after opportunities to provide for my brother and I. I grew up in New Jersey until I was 14, when my mother, brother and I moved rural Missouri. I never felt supported academically, and I never was seen as a “good student”. The only reason I went to school after moving to Missouri was because I played sports. After High School I made the choice to join the military over attending community college.

From the military, to sales, to management, and now in teaching I have found myself using all the experiences in my life, to propel me in my career.

There are so many aspects to teaching. Reflection is the most important tool to build on all the various intricacies of education. I hope this site can help me reflect on my experiences, while also guiding others in their journey.
