Hi there, I'm Zochil Eagan
I am a paraeducator. I have been a teaching assistant for over 10 years and have special education experience in preschool, elementary and middle school. I have worked with children from various diagnoses like autism, cerebral-palsy, spina-bifida and down syndrome.
I believe all children are unique and must have a well rounded educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my passion to create this type of support to students. I will assist students to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well embrace their full potential.
I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I believe that I owe it to my students, as well as the community, to bring consistency, diligence, and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such traits in others
I know most students don't believe I have a life outside of the school, but I do. I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with my amazing husband and our 4 children. During our free time we love to go to the park, take short hikes, bowling and hit the arcade.
