To start, I hope you and your family had an enjoyable and safe summer. At this time, I would like to introduce myself to my parents and scholars. My name is Cardelia Horn and I am new to the Crete-Monee School District and will be co-teaching 1st grade, with Mrs. Jody Olson, at Balmoral Elementary School.
I have over twenty-years of elementary teaching experience in Illinois and taught for five years in Arkansas and California combined. During the past thirteen years, my career focus has been special education. However, my undergraduate degrees provide me with certification as a regular and special education teacher. In addition, I hold a Masters Degree in Education from National-Louis University.
I am very excited to be your scholar’s teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. Working together, this will be a challenging and productive school year for all of us! Communication is key to a successful school year, and please know that I am available to answer any questions you might have. My email address is hornc@cm201U.org or feel free to leave a message at (708) 367-2500.
In closing, please encourage your scholar to put forth his or her very best effort each day, show respect for others, and follow class and school rules.
