Hello! I am Abigail Tieck - a recent graduate of DePaul University with a Masters Degree in Secondary Education, I am seeking employment as a Social Studies/ History teacher in a Chicago area Middle or High School.
I am originally from Sioux City, Iowa where I was fortunate to grow up in a family of teachers (formal and informal!). I was taught the value of a good education from a very young age. After High School, I completed two undergraduate degrees (BA in History; BM in Opera Performance) at Minnesota State University in Mankato MN.
I am passionate about history and music, I love exploring and learning about other cultures and traditions, and I believe wholeheartedly in the power of education and knowledge to uplift, enlighten, and empower. I hope to be able to inspire my students with the stories of people from our past - people who persevered through tough situations to accomplish amazing feats, people who refused to let their social station decide their fate, people who did things that no one thought possible.
I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about educational opportunities in Chicago and to meet likeminded individuals for stimulating discussion and collaboration!
