|About Mrs. Hessert|
|First Grade Teacher
This will be my 11th year teaching in Lemont and my 26th year as a teacher! I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Fourth Grade, and have taught as a Reading Coordinator. I am happy to be back in First Grade!
THINGS I LIKE:
I like Kindergarten kids, and first grade kids!
I like good stories.
I like interesting movies.
I like healthy food.
I like pizza with lots of vegetables on it.
I like long drives in the country.
I like hugs. And smiles!
I like flowers.
I like having the clicker.
I like swimming in the lake.
I like long walks.
I like being a teacher!
I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University in Bloomington (go Hoosiers!) and an M.S. in Reading Education from National-Louis University.
I live with my husband, Rich, in our little house in Elmhurst. We celebrated our 13th anniversary this September! I am a wife, a sister, an aunt, and a daughter. I have two special children in my life: my nephew, Noah and my niece, Rose. I love to read stories of all kinds, to swim and hike, and to cross stitch. I recently learned to knit and to crochet too! I am an avid movie watcher, and I enjoy cooking and eating organic and healthy foods.
