Welcome to First Grade Room 14
I am excited to join the Queen of All Saints family this year! This will be my sixteenth year of teaching. I have spent three years as a full-time building substitute in Evanston K-5 public schools, and then received my first classroom position at Northside Catholic Academy where I taught first grade for seven years and third grade for four years. Last year I taught third grade at a charter school and during that time decided my heart was with Catholic education. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters in Reading, as well as I'm a certified reading specialist. I am happy to be returning to teaching first grade and to be at such a warm, welcoming school like Queen of All Saints. I look forward to getting to know the students and parents during this year.
Sincerely, Mr. Jura
