B.S.Ed in Elementary Education Endorsements in Language Arts, Social Studies, and English as a Second Language

Mrs. Oakley

I am a graduate of Northern Illinois University and have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts and Social Studies. I also hold an English as a Second Language endorsement. This year is my twelfth year as a teacher and my eighth year teaching kindergarten at Spaulding School.

I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grades - but kindergarten is my favorite! Not only do we learn how to read, write, add, and subtract, but we also discover so many things together. Every year is a new, fun adventure. I'm so lucky to be able to watch my students grow so quickly in such a short amount of time. It's the most rewarding job in the world!

When I'm not at school, I love to spend time with my husband, Ken and our four-year-old son, George. We like to cheer on the Cubs, go boating, kayak, and hike.
