Hello, my name is Joann Kallianis and I am your child's teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. I am so excited to help your child become successful emotionally, socially, and academically. My focus is to help your child gain reading, writing, and mathematical skills. In order to do this, I will need your support. I believe it takes a village to raise your child and it begins at home. Please make sure that you model reading on a daily basis. You are the most important role model in your child's life. Let your child see you reading and he or she will follow suit.
I have been a special education teacher for many years. I have an Associates Degree from the College of Lake County, and a Bachelors Degree from Illinois State University. My goal is to continue my education in the field of early childhood. I would like to volunteer in a pre-school when I retire. I believe that education is a journey and not a destination.
When I am not in school, I enjoy gardening, reading, and shopping. I also enjoy doing activities with the Red Hat Society, an organization of woman that I am a member of.
I am always available if you need to contact me. Please feel free to call or email me at any time. I will get back to you as soon as possible!
BE AN EAGLE AND SOAR HIGH IN EDUCATION!
