Dr. Jaime Klein has always felt drawn to working with young people. She never really decided to be a teacher; teaching decided to claim her. She began her career as a high school English teacher and, as her career in education evolved, now loves to work with students who come to Illinois College and share her passion for helping others to grow. Dr. Klien maintains that the teacher makes the biggest difference in a classroom and enjoys giving future teachers the confidence to believe that they can make a difference. 

What Students Say
Dr. Klein makes education classes very engaging and exciting by using the very strategies she is teaching us in her classroom.
