• Hello, my name is Tahani Jaber and I am very excited to be starting my first year at Dorn.  I will be the Special Education Resourse Teacher.  Prior to working in District 117, I taught 6th, 7thh, and 8th grade special education with the focus in Math in District 127.5 in Chicago Ridge.  I am certified in teaching kids from the age of 3 through the age of 22 with my dual Bachlor's certificate in Regular and Special Education that I received from Trintiy Christian College.  I am also in the process of getting my Masters in ESL through American College of Education.  As a special education teacher, I believe in creating a warm classroom envirnment where children experience a feeling of belonging, safety, confiedence, independence, and kindness.  It is my goal to help every child to develop a passion for learning.  I look forward to getting to know you and your children!  Please feel free to email, call, or set up an appointment to discuss any questions or conern you may have. 


    As your child's teacher I promose to always be in one of 3 places:

    In front of them to cheer them on

    Behind them to have their back

    and next to them so that they aren't walking alone.
