Hi! My name is Miss Mary Kate, and I am a teacher in Oak Park. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago. I graduated from the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!) in 2020 with a Psychology and Family Sciences degree. In June of 2022, I graduated with my Masters in Education. The 2023/2024 school year will be my 4th year teaching! I love developing relationships with my students and their families, learning how to help children learn to read in an engaging and fun way while encouraging children to take ownership of their education. When I'm not at school, you can find me trying new recipes at home, seeking out new restaurants, reading, or staying active. I love going for walks with my Maltipoo, Rooney!
I would be honored to help your child learn and grow with JAM Teaching! As an educator, I understand that no two children learn the same way. Children's formative years are so crucial to their long-term successes and achievements. I aim to find what excites a student about learning to captivate and excite them.
