Dear Parents/Guardians,
I am your child's second grade teacher at Rural Vale and I wanted to introduce myself to you. I am looking forward to a successful year for your son or daughter.
This will be my thirteenth year teaching and I have six years of experience as a high school soccer coach and two years experience as a middle school soccer coach as well. My credentials include: B.A. Elementary Education with concentrations in Language Arts, Social Studies and Science from Lewis University (Romeoville, IL); Master of Education degree and Principal Licensure Program certificate from Indiana Wesleyan University (Marion, IN) and an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University. I also have ten years experience as a firefighter, with seven years in a Chicagoland suburb.
Please email anytime if you ever have any questions or concerns at knesekj@monroek12.org and go Panthers!
