I hope you have all had a thrilling and relaxing summer and are as excited for the new school year as I am. I can’t wait for all the learning and memories we will create together this upcoming year! As we have moved to our temporary building, the process of getting set up and unpacked has gotten me itching to get back to teaching and learning with the kiddos.
For those of you that don’t know me, I moved to the Champaign-Urbana area in 2000 and I haven’t been able to leave since! I finished my degree in Biology and Political Science, but later went back to school to get my degree in Education. I finished my Masters Degree in the winter of 2011 and am now working on my PhD in educational policy studies. My focus of study is on digital literacy, so the students will definitely be dabbling in that quite a bit! In my free time, I enjoy reading, baking, and cooking.
In order for us to have a successful school year, I know it will take a team effort. I will do my best to be in constant communication with you through our website, phone calls, notes home, emails, and face-to-face meetings about your child’s academic and social progress. Feel free to contact me as well if you have any questions or concerns about your child. The school phone number is (217)351-3815 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to getting to know each of you in the near future!
