WELCOME TO 4th GRADE
Hello! I am Ms. Michelle Pena and I have been teaching in District 111 for 19 years. Before that I was a substitute teacher in District 111 for three years while earning my Masters Degree in education at Domincan University. My Bachelors Degree was obtained at Governors State University. While earning my degrees, I acquired endorsements in General Science, Language Arts, Speech, Social Science, and Biology.
I have tried to create a classroom where learning takes place through a variety of teaching techniques, where students feel safe and comfortable, and their self-esteem is nurtured. I feel this kind of classroom makes
my students enjoy the learning process and helps them to develop a motivation to gain new knowledge.
