Local Learners & Co.

Our City. Our Community. Our Learners.

Welcome and thank you for being here. It is my hope that we can come together as a greater community to learn & support one another.

I promise I won’t clog your inbox, let’s face it… I don’t have time for that! Newsletters will include helpful hints, links to blog posts & exclusive freebies!

Free Things!

Hey! I’m Mona. I am in my 12th year of teaching in Chicago. I’ve centered my career around learning to teach in ways that allow students to be in the drivers seat.
