Welcome back to another great school year here at Monee Elementary!! For those of you who are new, and for those of you who had me last year, I am looking forward to seeing my little guys and gals again. I am looking forward to meeting you all and am excited about a great school year.
Let me take an opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching for the Crete-Monee School District for the past 18 years and have loved every minute of it. My past students would describe me as a funny and crazy teacher who “makes them do a lot of work”!! Oh, and also someone who LOVES everything DISNEY!! I think I am very outgoing, friendly, consistent, fair, and competitive!!! I love to play games!!! I am a very open person and am always willing to take time out and discuss any concerns you may have. I want you all to feel free to call or stop by my classroom at any time. I know how important your child’s education is and will be willing to help in any way I can. Keeping within the field of education, I am married to a fellow teacher, a third grade teacher, so we have a lot of fun conversations at home!!! We have a nine year old daughter, Lillian Grace, who is in 4th grade this year!! Can’t wait to see what her teacher says about her!! She likes to talk like her mommy!!! ? We also have a five year old daughter, Lucille Rose!! Lucy is a head-strong, happy girl who loves to sing and dance, just like her big sister, Lilly. Lucy will be in Kindergarten this year. She is soooo excited. I’m a little sad, but that is how it goes, I guess. We were also quite busy this summer with a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida!!! After Monee Elementary of course, that is my second home!! I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks in Europe this summer as well. I visited sights in Italy, France, and Spain. Besides Disney, I love traveling!!
Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Coluzzi are my wonderful classroom teaching assistants and they are looking forward to a great year. Both are so excited to be working with your child. I hope everyone had a great summer and I hope your little ones enjoyed their time off; I know I did!!! If you ever have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call the school. Thanks so much for your time and I hope we all have an enjoyable year!!! Welcome Back!!!
