Pauline Zdonek

Math Coach

I am a certified elementary, middle grades, and special education teacher. I hold middle school endorsements in language arts, mathematics, and social studies. I am currently a math coach in the western suburbs of Chicago. I’ve taught in the city and suburbs and have had students of all different backgrounds in grades 2 to 8. My specialties include coaching, co-teaching, inclusion, curriculum writing, reading/writing workshop, mathematics, differentiated instruction, professional development, and flipped classroom.

When I’m not teaching or playing with my two boys (three if you count my husband), I am reading, writing, or watching my beloved Michigan Wolverines play football or basketball.
