Mrs. Bev O'Rozco
Bachelor Degree from Lewis University in Elementary and Special Education
Master Degree from Governor's State University - Reading Specialist
I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes in Lemont over the course of fifteen years. As a teacher, I am committed to life-long learning of all aspects of my profession.
I plan and teach in a manner that is student centered and individualized in order to meet the diverse needs of the learners I work with. It is my desire to inspire and motivate students by making learning interesting, fun and challenging. Creating an environment where students feel comfortable and confident enough to work through mistakes is key to their success.
In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, biking, kayaking and traveling with my family. I am looking forward to spending time with my first grandchild this year. My dog Polar and I are a certified therapy team with Alliance Therapy Dogs. We enjoy participating in the Book Barkers Program at the Lemont Public Library. My dog Bailey and I are working on agility training and hope to compete in the future.
